Free Youth Basketball Clinics with KING Hoops

Kids aged 4-17 can join Brooklyn Bridge Park Conservancy for free basketball clinics led by KING Hoops, NYC’s premier youth basketball organization. Learn basketball basics as head coaches lead participants through drills and games. For 2024, free clinics will be offered on Tuesdays, June 4-July 23. Players may join for individual weeks or the full season.

Register Now!

Advanced registration and waivers are required, although walk-up registrations can be accommodated as space allows. Registration will open every Tuesday at 10:00 AM for class the following week.

The first hour 5:00 – 6:00 PM will be for beginner players who are brand new to the sport. Here we will teach the very basic fundamentals of the game, the rules of the game, and getting acclimated to having a ball in each player’s hands. The second hour 6:00 – 7:00 PM will be for advanced beginners to intermediate players who have played a little bit more basketball. Emphasis will be on ball handling, passing, shooting form, defense, and learning to love the game.

Sign up for our emails to receive updates about Youth Basketball Clinics and all of the programming the Conservancy has to offer.
