Kings Minor Basketball: Quick-Start Program


Basketball is an exciting sport for children of all ages.

The Quickstart program, for kids aged 4-7 (grades P-2), offers children the opportunity to learn fundamental basketball skills through fun games and scrimmages.

Kids will learn to dribble, pass, shoot and defend while playing fun activities and games This co-ed basketball program practices once a week: Saturday mornings at Coldbrook school from 9:00- 10:00, with the exception of 3-4 jamborees. KMBA hosts a Christmas cupcake jamboree, the last Saturday before we close for a Christmas break. Quickstart kids are separated into equally skilled groups to play fun “mini” games of basketball against quickstart kids from other clubs. Coaches join the kids on the floor to help them learn what basketball games are about. There are no referees and it is all for fun. Parents are asked to bring one or two ingredients to be shared with all of the Quickstart Kids from across the League.

Many times, other clubs will host a mid season jamboree to bring all of the young basketball enthusiasts together for fun and entertaining games. KMBA typically hosts the closing jamboree each year, bringing all the kids from across the league together for a morning of fun. Acadia varsity basketball players (both boys and girls) typically join us to help facilitate the fun. Most of all Quickstart is designed to make kids LOVE basketball. While building skills, we want to create a passion for the game and help kids develop the values, qualities, and skills required for both basketball and life. Kids of all skill levels and abilities are welcome. Parents are strongly encouraged to participate. The more people we have on the floor with the kids, the more help and support we can offer.
