Spark Change Basketball Skills & Drills is a free program for girls and boys (K through 8th grade) to get out and work on those basketball skills! We focus on the fundamentals of basketball—dribbling, passing, shooting, conditioning, teamwork—as well as teaching the basic rules of basketball (traveling, 3-seconds rule, double-dribbling, lane violations, etc.). We also discuss how to live our Native values on the basketball court: showing courage, generosity, and wisdom. Participants receive t-shirts and basketballs upon completion of the camps!

Come on down to the Riverside Gym—check the schedule for details. There is no charge for this program. Snacks and drinks are provided. To register, simply e-mail Native@sacredpipe.net with your child(ren)’s NAME and AGE.

Adult supervision is provided at these events, but we do ask parents/guardians to co-sign the youth permission and traditional code of conduct form (available at the first event you attend.)

Sponsored by Sacred Pipe Resource Center, BPS/JOM, and Running Strong for American Indian Youth.

Activities will change month-to-month and as we have adult volunteers available. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents to help Native youth and families, please contact us here at SPRC!
