In addition, our inclusion of life skills training provides important lessons for success off the court. We value and teach the SPUT SPIRIT – (S) service, (P) perseverance, (I) integrity, (R) responsibility, (I) imagination, and (T) teamwork.
To help combat the summer slide, kids ages 5-8 will have a longer lesson time that incorporates reading and physical literacy activities for half the lesson. Please view frequently asked questions here
