Cherry Hill Health and Racquet Club offers basketball opportunities for every kid through our A1 Basketball Program, making us the best in youth basketball in Cherry Hill and the South Jersey, Philadelphia, and Delaware area.
Kids take to our courts to learn and refine their basketball skills through practice and competition in the fun and safe environment of our coed youth basketball programs. Our coaching staff has significant experience playing and coaching basketball and know how to bring out the best skills and sportsmanship in your kid.
Our year-round youth basketball program, including a Kiddie Court to introduce the youngest players to the game, skills clinics, summer camp, private training, small group training, and speed and strength training are all designed to help master the basics and add finesse and sophistication to your kid’s game, and to lay a solid foundation for fun and competition.
For those looking for experience playing and competing, youth leagues are held for kids of ages 6 all the way through high school. High-level players can try out for the AAU travel teams as a way to gain experience playing with and against the most talented players in the area.
Our youth basketball programs are a great way to develop students into better all-around athletes and make friends!
Cherry Hill offers skills clinics for ages 6-10 to teach the basics to those just starting out in the sport, as well as offer development to those who already have an understanding of the game. Sessions start with a warm-up and cardio, then students rotate from station to station working on skill development. Each session ends with games and contests. Our non-competitive Youth Basketball Skills Clinics are all about fun, exercise and learning.
Our introductory program for 4- and 5-year-olds focuses on having fun, getting exercise, developing good social skills and learning the basics of basketball. This non-competitive program will get little ones moving!
The Skill Development League is to encourage young players to come out and learn how to play correctly. Each week specific assets of the game will be worked on. A total of 8 games and 8 practices for a total of 16 weeks. Practices will consist of skills and drills along with team building qualities. Games and practices will alternate every other week.
Students who want to step up their game can work one on one with our best trainers to improve their game and skills. Training is tailored specifically to a player’s individual needs so he or she will see results fast. All of our trainers have played high school and college basketball and several play professionally, so they’re well qualified to help you take your game to the next level!
Small-group basketball training is a chance for students to work with one of Cherry Hill’s high-level trainers to improve their game and skills in a personalized setting tailored specifically to the needs and skill level of the group. Not only is small-group training less expensive than private training, but it also proves more motivating for certain kids.
