Elementary Basketball Club Team
3rd Grade Boys 8U 9U
At Colorado Lightning, we believe 3rd grade is a pivotal time for young basketball players to build their athletic skills and faith foundations. Our Christ-centered basketball program nurtures 3rd graders who are 8 to 9 year old boys (8U to 9U) with high-quality instruction, character development, and fun on the court. Players improve dribbling, passing, shooting and other fundamentals while learning positive values like leadership and teamwork.
Building Youth Basketball Skills The Right Way
Our experienced coaches focus on progressive player development by breaking down key skills into simple, repeatable layers. Young athletes continually improve form, footwork, ball handling, scoring moves, perimeter shooting, and court awareness through strategic drill-work and encouragement.
Instead of memorizing complex plays, we want 3rd graders to master floor spacing, cutting hard, setting good screens, moving without the ball, and other fundamental tactics. Players impress parents and school coaches with their soaring basketball IQ.
More Than Just A Youth Basketball Program
In the Lightning program, inspiring devotions and prayer allow the Holy Spirit to enter boys’ hearts. We discuss scripture as it relates to good sportsmanship and overcoming challenges as a cohesive team. Guided scrimmages teach the satisfaction of selfless play.
