Program Focus The purpose of the Rookie (Kindergarten) League is to provide a fun environment for developing a strong skill-based foundation into the game of basketball. Fundamentals are introduced thru entertaining games and drills designed to provide participants with a core foundation to the game.
The Rookie League focuses on many of the primary skills and drills that your daughters will see throughout all levels of the Eden Prairie Girls Basketball Program.
