Winter Training League 2023-2024

This winter, In the Zone will be running a basketball training league to train and develop players during this winter season. We've come up with an efficient system to combine practice, training and game experience in one overall program. 

Two separate 5 week sessions on Sundays, Nov 19-Dec 17 and Jan 14-Feb 11

2 hours each week

First hour: skills training and practice consisting of ball handling, passing, shooting, defense, rebounding, 2 v 2 concepts, 3 v 3 concepts and so on.  

Second hour:  Pick teams and play a game putting into play what we just practiced. During the games, the coaches will field relatively equal teams to promote competitive games.  Playtime will be relatively even as long as players maintain a good attitude, are coachable, respectful and play solid team basketball on both ends of the court.


Time Slots

  • Girls grades 3-4  Training 12:00-1:00; Game 1:00-2:00
  • Girls grades 5-6  Training 2:00-3:00; Game 3:00-4:00

*Depending on skill assessment and flow of the full court games, we might have select groups play 3v3 for first couple weeks.

Certain players may play up or down based on ability, size, aggressiveness etc.  This will be on a case by case basis as determined by the program director.
