In today's episode of Virtual Gym Class, we're focusing on basketball skills and drills.

Looking for a little rainy day fun, join us in the In Your House Basketball Challenge!

Our director of camp and youth programs, Christian Christopher from the Kennett YMCA, challenges you to see how many points you can get in under one minute. View the rules and learn more about the challenge in the video below:

Basketball skills and drills you can do at home.

As official partners of the Jr. NBA, we would like to share with you this wonderful resource for drills and activities you can do at home to make sure your basketball skills stay sharp and you can continue to get better, even if you are stuck in your house!

Below, you will not only find an introduction from NBA Sophomore, Jaren Jackson Jr., talking about this amazing initiative the Jr. NBA is beginning, but you will also find a couple of drills you can get started today if you have a basketball laying around! 

For more great tips, drills and skills you can go to the Jr. NBA's website, and also follow along the Jr. NBA at their various social media platforms (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram). We hope to see some of you joining along with the Jr. NBA and we encourage you to post videos to your social media, using the hashtags #JrNBAatHome and #YMCAGBW, so we can see all the hard work your putting and the fun you are having!
