The Respect Basketball Freshmen Squad is a Calgary basketball program for U10-U11 boys and girls. Full-year athletes will focus on their individual skill development while learning more in-depth team (game) concepts. Not only will our Respect Freshmen continue to harness the physical skills of the game, but all Respect athletes will also engage in Respect Training to learn the philosophy of the game, skill-appropriate plays & strategies, rules & terminology along with character-building events such as community service, team building, and more.
If you are looking for a Calgary basketball training program, the Respect Basketball Winter Skills Training involves high-intensity, individual skill development, and training that is geared toward practical game situations. We want all our players at this age to make their respective middle school and junior high school teams and we have insight into what those coaches are looking for so we have built our program around that premise. This skill development will focus on sharpening fundamentals up to ELITE status skill work. This is not the army - YES, we work very hard, but we do it in an enjoyable atmosphere so all you need to concentrate on is getting better. Give us a PERFECT effort and we will give you the platform to be as successful as you desire. You only get better if you are pushed to be better!
Spring team evaluations will take place mid-March, after the city high school basketball finals. Please note, we do not cut players from our programs, and we do not charge an additional fee to reevaluate for placement on a Spring team.
