Fall Quarterly

Join CRPA for a discussion on two important topics in the field. First, will be a roundtable discussion on the structure of youth basketball programs. See what works and what doesn't directly from departments who already run these programs and learn different ways to prepare and train volunteer coaches as an opportunity for improvement in these youth leagues. After lunch, we will reconvene for a session discussing character education through play and how the passiveness of today's youths has left them with little experience in 'pure play'. We will discuss how creative, interactive play can be used to help instill core values among youth.
