The Nether Swarthmore Basketball program serves children in grades K-12, beginning with a developmental clinic-like structure for children in kindergarten and first grades. Held on Sunday afternoons and run by adult volunteers, the program focuses on skill development, working on the basics and promoting good team work. It is co-ed and each hour long session ends with a short small sided game.
Grades 2-3 has a league for boys and a league for girls. There are volunteer coaches, one one-hour practice session per week and a game on the weekend. Developmental in style, this program builds on the skills learned in the Developmental K-1 program. Beginning players who have not played before at all are also welcome in this league.
Grades 4-12 leagues are also separate for boys and girls and are more competitive with skill development for more strategic plays. NSB uses a blind draft to create fair, even teams and coaches are all volunteers. Travel teams are also formed for this age group.
The NSB program runs November through February. SRA will also host a recreational summer league for all ages including adults.
