Slam Jam Parents

Slam Jam gives your child a fun and exciting introduction into basketball in a safe environment.

The programmes run for 6 – 12 weeks and are packed with fun games, competitions and activities led by activators who are fully trained and provide a safe and fun environment for your child to play basketball.

Slam Jam Benefits

  • Basketball is one of the most diverse and inclusive sports available and Slam Jam sessions ensure all participants feel welcome and enjoy their experience.
  • Utilising the skills and knowledge from top experts, Slam Jam provides children with the opportunity to enjoy the social, physical and mental health benefits of playing basketball.
  • One of the key elements of basketball children will learn is the importance of teamwork. The strong team spirit found on the basketball court offers new participants a positive and supportive environment to build their confidence and skills in the sport.
  • Slam Jam aims to improve children's physical literacy, teaching core skills like catching, throwing, running and jumping. The active nature of basketball, which requires constant movement and running, will help children to maintain the recommended levels of physical activity.
  • Children should also experience an increased ability to concentrate as they are challenged to stay focused during the Slam Jam sessions.

 

Top tips for Parents

  • Practice with your children at home and encourage them to play with friends.
  • Get to know the reward scheme and help your child to practise the skills.
  • Explain fair play values and sportsmanship.
  • Focus on performance and effort instead of results. Ask “How did you play?” or “Did you have fun?”
  • Help your child to understand that respect for the rules, opponents and officials is part of playing and enjoying the game.

Slam Jam Rewards

Each week children earn stickers for their reward cards. They are ideal for children of all standards and children go through the cards at their own pace. Stickers can be collected for attendance, skills and teamwork.

The reward cards are a great way of retaining players in the game and help children to learn in stages.

 

 

What's included?
