- Dribbling: the foundation of ball control in basketball. Children learn how to dribble the ball while maintaining control.
- Shooting: kids learn shooting techniques, including shooting from different spots on the court.
- Passing: a fundamental teamwork skill. Children learn various types of passes, such as chest passes, bounce passes, and overhead passes.
