Welcome

GLENCOE LITTLE DRIBBLERS AND LITTLE DRIBBLERS TEAMS REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION

Glencoe Little Dribblers

Glencoe Little Dribblers - 2018

We focus on player development through the coaching of key basketball fundamentals, individual work ethic and teamwork.

 
We can only reach so many kids ourselves, and it is through the power and leveraging of you, the Glencoe community, that we can allow so many kids in the program.
 
We will amp up the fun this year, more games, more basketball opportunities for older kids and amazing volunteers!
 
We will run stations like last year, with coaches taking their team through each of the basketball fundamentals of: shooting, dribbling, defense, passing, foot work, and offensive moves.
 
We will also have the Glencoe High School teams and coaches as guest appearances each week.
 
Kindergarten and 1st grade will have their program run for 90 minutes and run slightly different stations than the older kids. Also, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th grade will be 135 minutes (2.25 hours) with the additional time being used for games: 3v3 and 4v4.
 
LITTLE DRIBBLER - TEAMS (NEW)
In addition, we are excited to announce a bonus session for the 2nd to 4th grade kids that are part of Little Dribblers, called Little Dribblers - Teams. Now going on 3rd year of Little Dribblers, we have noticed that we can do more to help our older Little Dribblers understand the game of basketball.
 
This means will enforce the rules, teach simple concepts on how to play as a team, and even go deeper into the individual roles of the players on the court during the game. Glencoe Youth Basketball volunteer Board President, Jeremy Stewart, will be leading this session, which will focus much of the time on 3v3, 4v4 and team concepts.
 
This will be a fun intro for many of the kids into the team aspect of basketball. We will also need those of you that want to help positively teach the game of basketball to be involved as coaches and referees.
 
Kids will need to be part of the morning Little Dribblers session to join the afternoon Teams session. Also, kids will need to bring their own lunch, and plan to eat during the 30 minute break we have between Little Dribblers and Little Dribblers - Teams.
 
We, as always, reserve the right to adjust the tentative schedule as we get more details on the gyms that we have access to for the weeks of the program and the number of kids and volunteers.

Volunteer!

We had over 150 volunteers last year!!! As many of you know, Little Dribblers volunteering is as much about giving kids high fives and a positive experience on the court as it is teaching the game through our stations.  You do not need prior basketball experience to volunteer for Little Dribblers. We at GYB strongly believe in the positive coaching experiences we can and should be giving our kids, to help them be successful on and off the court.

cost.

We are offering different options this year with Little Dribblers, as we want to help keep kids active, and money will not inhibit us having your child join us on the court. We are a parent volunteer run organization, that is trying to increase the access to organized sport for the Glencoe Community.
 
Here are the payment options (Little Dribblers Teams is $35):
$35 - a discounted price to get you on the court
$65 - the actual cost for GYB to run Little Dribblers for one player
$70 - a discounted price to get you on the court with Little Dribblers and Little Dribblers - Teams
$100 - the actual cost for GYB to run Little Dribblers and Little Dribblers Teams for one player
 
There are options to give more than the above amounts, which will be considered a donation. Our tax ID number for Glencoe Youth Basketball is 47-4514381. All donations will be used for Glencoe Youth Basketball, a Glencoe parent volunteer run organization.
