Lynnville-Sully Gym Rats

2018 Summer Boys Basketball Program

Boys Entering Grades 1st—8th

The Lynnville-Sully boys’ basketball coaches would like to invite all boys entering grades 1st

through 8th to be a part of our summer basketball program—the L-S Gym Rats. We believe

this program will provide young players the chance to have fun while improving their skills.


The L-S Gym Rats program is a 6-week program. We will meet two days a week (Wednesdays

for 3 on 3 & Fridays for fundamentals) for a total of 11 sessions. We will not meet on

Wednesday, July 4. This program will begin on Wednesday, June 6 and conclude on Friday,

July 13. This program will be held in the middle school gym which allows us to lower the

baskets for younger players. The high school gym will be utilized when needed.


3 on 3 Wednesdays (June 6, 13, 20, & 27 and July 11. We will not meet on July 4.)

The idea behind playing 3 on 3 is that it provides every player the chance to be more involved

in the game than in a typical 5 on 5 game. We believe this will help every player develop into a

more complete player. We will do our best to create teams that are balanced according to age

and ability. There will not be a lot of formal instruction on Wednesdays. The idea is to let the

boys play. We will be emphasizing sportsmanship, teamwork, and playing the game with

strong fundamentals. Should be a lot of fun!


  • Boys entering grades 5-8, will report at 9am and conclude at 10am.
  • Boys entering grades 1-4, will report at 10am and conclude at 11am.


Friday Fundamentals (June 8, 15, 22, & 29 and July 6 & 13)

Everyone likes to play basketball, but to be a good player, a person has to spend a lot of time

working on the fundamentals of the game. The purpose of Friday fundamentals is to teach

young players what it takes to develop solid ball handling and shooting skills that will help them

be successful in the future. We will encourage players to take what they learn in these

sessions and apply it to their workouts at home.

  • Boys entering grades 5-8, will report at 9am and conclude at 10am.
  • Boys entering grades 1-4, will report at 10am and conclude at 11am.


Details

• It’s important that everyone is on time, so we can get organized and use our time wisely.

• The cost for this program is only $35. That price includes all 11 sessions of the 6-week

program. It also includes a T-shirt.
