|Fall Youth Programs
At this time we are not able to operate a winter youth basketball program under the current restrictions. While basketball practices and games are allowed indoors with masks and other Covid-19 protocol according to new State of Vermont guidelines, we do not have access to a facility at this point to run the program. If the facility status changes and we are able to run a program at the school or Town gym, we will immediately release program information.

Kids can join us right after school to improve general conditioning including a focus on: core, strength, agility, flexibility and cardiovascular fitness. Based on the principle of movement mechanics, consistency, form and then intensity, our program pushes for quality movement throughout childhood. Consistent mechanics translates to higher sports performance and fewer sports injuries for kids. Research also indicates that exercise is beneficial to cognitive function, which means a consistent training program will have a positive impact on a child’s academic achievement. Participants of any fitness ability are welcome to join as workouts are adjusted to the individual fitness level in a non-competitive environment.
Adjustments to this program will be made to account for current safe protocols. Equipment will not be shared. Participants must wear a mask to class and use when indoors or when unable to keep socially distant outdoors.
Classes will be held outdoors as much as possible in good weather.
