New this Fall! The Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department is offering Smart Start Basketball for 3 and 4 year olds. Smart Start Basketball teaches children the basic motor skills necessary to play organized basketball while they work one-on-one and spend quality time with their parents. The program focuses on teaching children and their parents skills in dribbling/ball handling, passing/catching, shooting and running/agility without the threat of competition or the fear of getting hurt. Parent participation is required for this program.
Smart Start Basketball is held once a week for six weeks on Sundays, November 6 – December 18 with no class on November 27. Classes are held at Central Middle School in the gymnasium. There are two times available: 3:00 pm to 3:45 pm, or 4:00 pm to 4:45 pm.
The registration fee for Smart Start Basketball is $25.00, and a t-shirt is included. The deadline for registration will be Thursday, November 3 at 5:00 pm. You may register at the Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department in the lower level of City Hall, 215 Sycamore, by phone with credit card, or online at http://www.muscatineiowa.gov.
If you have any questions please call the Muscatine Parks and Recreation Department at 563-263-0241.
