At Trinity Lutheran School the K-3 grade students get the opportunity to work on those skills early. Twice a week in February athletic director Anna Langfeldt holds a basketball clinic. The entire event is geared toward fun as students work on learning the basics.

Langfeldt said because of the young age of the students, they stick to very basic skills.

“They are pretty young so do things like dribbling free tag to work on their dribbling skills, but we also work on the basics of passing, shooting and things like that,” said Langfeldt.

Langfeldt said it all is geared to learning the game and not being competitive at this age.

“They are having fun and it is adorable,” she said.

The goal of the clinic is to spark an interest in the game and that maybe the youngsters will want to play more when they get older.
