Welcome

GLENCOE'S LITTLE DRIBBLERS REGISTRATION AND INFORMATION

Glencoe Little Dribblers

Glencoe Little Dribblers - 2019

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

 
We are a parent volunteer run, basketball organization, serving the kids of the Glencoe community. We make the game of basketball fun through skill based stations and game play. We make teaching the game accessible for all volunteers, through simple drill instruction and focusing on the fact that we are on the court to encourage our kids.
 
We will also have the Glencoe High School basketball teams and coaches as guest coaches each week.
 
Format of the program this year:
January 11th - Volunteer Training Day with Diana Cutaia
January 18th - Little Dribbler Skill and Team Sessions @ EMS
January 25th - Little Dribbler Skill and Team Sessions, Picture Day & Trail Blazers Day @ EMS
February 1st - Game Day @ local elementary schools
February 8th - Little Dribbler Skill and Team Sessions @ EMS

Note, the plan for the Little Dribbler Skills and Team Sessions: 
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 150 minutes (2.5 hours).
Game days, each squad will play a game at a designated time in the morning. 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 250 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.

Volunteering highlights from last year:

  • 250 total volunteers
  • Nearly 80 Select Team and High School team players volunteered
  • 100 total women volunteered
  • 102 first time volunteers
  • 82 volunteers with no previous basketball experience

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.

Here are the payment options:
$35 - a discounted price to get you on the court
$65 - the actual cost for GYB to run Little Dribblers 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.
