Summer Skills Challenge

The Boosters Youth Basketball Association invites players heading into grades 3-8 to participate in the 2022 Huskies Summer Skills Challenge. 

The goal of the challenge is to provide some structure (via workout options posted on the Boosters website) and goals (2-week contests along with a full summer goal of 10,000 shot attempts) for kids that choose to put in individual work on developing their skills over the summer. 

The offseason can be a great time for development, particularly on ball handling skills, footwork, shooting form, and finishing moves.

Players that engage in the challenge can qualify for a t-shirt and entry into various gift card drawings (DQ, Starbucks, Dick’s) including a drawing for each two-week contest and a grand prize drawing in late September.  There is no cost to participate.

Check out the Summer Skills Challenge tab for details.
