5th Grade Club Basketball Program
10U & 11U
At Colorado Lightning, we believe 5th grade represents a pivotal time for taking young basketball players’ skills and character to the next level. Our Christ-centered program nurtures 5th graders who are 10 to 11 year old boys (10U to 11U) through advanced instruction, faith growth, and passion for the sport. Athletes improve their handles, passing, finishing and court awareness while adopting positive values.
Enhancing Basketball Skills and IQ
Our experienced coaches focus on building on fundamentals through more complex drills and competitive situations. Players elevate form, footwork, ball control, scoring drives, perimeter shooting, and reading the floor through intense training.
Rather than flooding kids with intricate plays, we empower 5th graders to master spacing, cuts, screens, moving without the ball, help defense and other intermediate tactics. Players stand out for their advanced grasp of the game.
More Than a Basketball Program
Through the Lightning program, impactful discussions and prayer allow the Holy Spirit to enter boys’ hearts. We explore scripture on themes of work ethic, leadership and unity. Scrimmages teach the importance of selfless team basketball.
