Bitty Ball basketball and soccer sessions have been run at multiple elementary schools in our target neighborhoods. Our experience shows us that most kids form their opinions, and acceptance, of certain negative norms by the time they are ten years old. So we targeting a young age, allowing them to form an identity linked to positive values.
Our programs teach athletic skills, but moreover teaches values that are illustrated on the court or field. Those values are then discussed, exploring how they also translate to every day life.
