Sunrise Basketball Programs

Sunrise Optimist Basketball for 1st-6th Graders
The Sunrise Optimist Club of North Topeka is sponsoring a basketball program for 1st-6th graders who reside in the Seaman USD 345 SchoolDistrict or who are home schooled. The emphasis of the program is on instruction of the basic basketball skills of dribbling, passing and shooting, as well as providing a recreational activity. Everyone plays in every game, because rather than putting all of the emphasis on winning, Sunrise Optimists emphasize values. We try to provide for the opportunity to learn  values such as teamwork, good sportsmanship, self-esteem and learning how to respect and get along with others.

Any player interested in participating in this program must register NO LATER THAN THE DATE IN THE CALENDAR BELOW if you wish to play on a team made up partly or entirely of your classmates. Registering or contacting the Leagure Director  later than the registration deadline may result in playing without fellow classmates.

Each year the success of the program depends on interested, responsible adults willing to serve as team coaches.

The coach's meeting is expected to be held on Sunday, September 23, 2018.
