At both schools, the players are able to get the fell for the full court as well as the opportunity to play in a gym where the baskets can be lowered to accommodate their height. The sessions include working on fundamentals of passing, shooting and dribbling through an assortment of drills. Each player will receive their own Lopatcong Basketball practice shirt to play in each session.
