3rd - 6th Grade Youth Basketball

ERC/Emporia Basketball Academy Clinics  

5th & 6th Graders

Program Adjustment – With guidance from the Lyon County Health Department, due to the recent upswing in community spread of COVID-19, the ERC has decided to alter the 3rd thru 6th grade youth basketball program.  ERC will not play a league schedule with outside communities like in past years and will move to an instructional clinic format. Participants will meet twice a week in the ERC gym in small groups.  Only participants will be allowed to attend, no spectators or parents will be allowed in the gym.  Clinics will focus on the fundamentals of basketball, including ball handling, dribbling, shooting, and defense.  Game situations and controlled scrimmages will be incorporated into the program.
