BASKETBALL


  • 2020 fall outdoor skills

    For the first time ever ORYA is offering an outdoor fall basketball program. Unlike ORYA’s regular season program which builds from skill work to game-play and game-play scenarios, this program will focus exclusively on individual skill with the ball. Developing ball handling skills, offensive moves and shot mechanics will be primary goal of the program. Offering this program outdoors will be new experience for all and one we hope to make a regular offering in our fall and spring calendars. All sessions will be led by Coach Jason Campbell.

PURPOSE


The purpose of the ORYA basketball program is to teach kids grades K-8 the fundamentals of the game so that they can enjoy playing for a lifetime. Evaluations will take place for players in grades 3-8 and the results of the evaluations will be used to split up the teams evenly based on parity.


2019 WINTER PROGRAM


ORYA’s Basketball program offers a place to play for kids from Kindergarten to 8th grade. Each age group offers age-appropriate skill development in a fun environment with volunteer coaches. All players within the K-6th grade groups will participate in an in-house program with no travel to other communities. Coaches focus mainly on developing individual skills while creating a love for the game. As players reach the 7th to 8th grade level they are introduced to league play and competition against other towns. Coaches within these age groups begin to introduce players to the tactics and positioning of the game assuming players will have a good fundamental base by participating in our younger program.

  • 2019 Kindergarten

    Players are introduced to the basic concepts of the game; dribbling with fingertips and with both hands, moving the ball in all directions, passing and receiving, two-handed shooting, in addition to learning basic rules and elements of the game. Playing fun games with hoops at a maximum of 8 feet provide higher levels of success for players of this age range, where technique is key!
