Jr. Knights Basketball

Our mission is to simply help get kids better both in basketball and in life.

First, we are about skills. This fall we were able to fit in 15 workouts/practices before our first game. The first 6-8 practices are 100% skill development. We place a huge emphasis on footwork, ball handling, and finishing in the paint. When we get to team practices, we shift to about half-and-half skill work and team concepts.
Another great thing about our program moving forward is we will have the option to play spring/summer season as well. We with bring the same methodology as fall/winter. Heavy emphasis on skill development. We will have 15/20 practices before we play any games. We encourage multiple activities so we will offer anywhere from 4-6 tournaments in the spring/summer.

Skills will be run by Coach Salsman the Mount Michael Head Basketball coach along with the rest of his staff and youth coaches.

Where? Practices are held in the Mount Michael Palace at 22520 Mount Michael Road Elkhorn, Nebraska 68022
