Germantown Academy clinics and clubs are open to the public and run by GA coaches.
For the 30th consecutive year, the GA Basketball coaching staff will be conducting our Saturday Morning Basketball Clinic! This program is open to all boys and girls in Grades 1 through 4, including players who do not attend Germantown Academy.
Instruction for young people new to the game of basketball is the primary goal of this program. Each Saturday session begins with a 40-minute lesson in the fundamentals of the game of basketball by a member of the GA coaching staff. Following this lesson, the children are separated by age and ability to play games. The children are coached during these games by members of the Varsity Boys Basketball Team, and our basket heights are customized to be appropriate for younger players.
- Open to boys and girls in Grades 1-4
- Orientation Day: Saturday, November 3, 10-11am
- $150 for 10 Saturday Sessions includes a T-shirt and basketball
