Each session begins with sessions of three-hour mini-camps with large group drilling, followed by skill-based smaller groups for more detailed drilling, followed by scrimmaging. Players are split, according to skill level, into their league teams by the end of the clinic sessions and stay on those teams for the remaining weeks of league games. During weeks where league games are played, the families who get the most benefit from the program are the ones who still treat every session as a three-hour skills development session - instead of showing up only for their game. One full court is solely devoted to skills stations (two or three simultaneous stations) while the league games are played on the remaining three courts.

When registering for a session, you will have the opportunity to choose from one of the following divisions (players may be moved into a more appropriate division after the skills clinics). All players will be assigned a team within a division before league play.
