3-on-3 (K through 2nd grade) Winter Session

For those of you that have played in GABL in the past, things will look very different for you this winter.  GABL has been offering youth basketball opportunities for over 46 years in Kansas City and the 2020-21 winter season will be no different.  We believe in the value of youth sports and the positive affect it has on our community.  As many already know, the school districts that GABL usually operates all of their games and practices are not available for use this winter.  GABL has made arrangements with private facilities for this season and will be able to accommodate around 500 kids per session.  In years past, this program has had over 1,200 participants. 
Don't wait to sign up at the last minute!     

The mission of the Development Program is to allow kindergartners, first- and second-graders the opportunity to learn the fundamental skills of basketball while having fun and developing a love for the game. This program is uniquely structured to help children learn the game of basketball. There are eight (8) 60-minute sessions. Each session consists of warm-up/skill development time and a 3-on-3 game where players have the opportunity to apply the skills they have learned. Each game is made up of two 15-minute halves with a brief halftime.
