Blaine Spring Skills (Registration Closed)

Have a player currently in grades K-8 that would like to play a little more basketball this spring?  Blaine Youth Girls Basketball is offering a chance to work on skills and play in small games, like 3 on 3, over the course of 5 Saturday/Sundays this spring at Sunrise Elementary.  Session times and age groups will depend on final registration numbers, but will be at least one hour in length.  

  • Grades K-3 will start no earlier than 8am and finish no later than 12pm on Saturdays.
  • Grades 4-8 will start no earlier than 4pm and finish no later than 8pm on Sundays.  

The goals for the skills sessions are to have fun, improve individual and team skills, and give players things to work on over the summer and heading into next year's seasons.  Sessions will be led by Blaine Youth Basketball Coaches and Board Members.

We want to thank Toppers Pizza for their continued support of our program.  We were able to raise over $400 for the girls youth and high school basketball programs through the Doughnation Fundraiser they did for us last month!

To help athletes and communities stay active in a safe and healthy way during the COVID-19 pandemic, all HomeCourt features are free through the end of May, 2020 (available only through the App Store at this time).

The software uses artificial intelligence (ai) in combination with the camera on your device to capture and analyze your shooting and dribbling.  Offering training and workouts that seem more like video games than drills.

Watch the film here.

Download the app here.

Requirements: an iPhone or iPad and a basketball for dribbling drills. 
Shooting analysis requires the device in a location (preferably behind the shooter) to see the basket and the shooter at the free throw distance for AI to set the measurements.
