The program runs from October 1, 2021 thru February 20, 2022 and includes a weekly 70-minute practice on Fridays, 15 games (8 Fall and 7 Winter – Saturdays or Sundays) in the OSA Fall and Winter PELLA Leagues and two tournaments (1 Fall and 1 Winter). Practices will be run by OSA professional coaching staff, and each team will have a parent volunteer head coach who will receive extensive training from OSA professional staff. Practices will consist of 55 minutes of age-appropriate and cutting-edge skill development on proper shooting, form, footwork, passing, ball-handling and concepts. This portion of practice will be led by OSA staff and facilitated by the parent volunteer head coach. The remaining 15 minutes of practice will consist of games/contests or coaches’ choice.
