The popular Kinder Basketball League through the Medfield Parks & Recreation Department got off to a fast start Saturday morning, with 54 Kindergarteners on six teams participating in practices and games at the Memorial School gymnasium.
Splashed in their team colors – red, orange, Kelly green, charcoal, royal blue and gold – the players were put through drills by the volunteer parent coaches, including passing, dribbling, defense and shooting. Once practice was over, each team participated in a game, where fun and learning the basic rules were emphasized.
The league will run throughout the winter and into early April on Saturday mornings from 9am to noon. For more information on the league, or any other Parks & Recreation activities, visit their Web site at www.medfieldrec.com.
