2023 Summer Basketball Series
Summer is the perfect time for your homeschool student to make new friends while improving their basketball skills at the same time! To meet the different needs of younger and older boys, Omaha Lightning Basketball will offer two different programs this summer... one for grade school aged players and one for junior high/high school aged players.
-Lightning Summer Grade School Program-
The Lightning Summer Grade School Program is designed primarily to be FUN for younger homeschooled boys ages 8-12. However, skill development is also something that is a focus for this age group. Our coaches will work with these young players in small groups of similarly skilled boys to encourage and teach them the fundamentals necessary to be successful in basketball. Six skill development clinic sessions are scheduled for Monday evenings, starting July 10th through August 14th from 6-8 pm at St. Mark's Lutheran Church (1821 N. 90th Street). Two fun game-like scrimmage sessions will also be offered on Saturday, July 29th and August 19th at Brownell Talbot School (400 Happy Hollow Boulevard)- exact times To Be Determined.
Cost for the Lightning Summer Grade School Program:
$50/player if registered before June 26th, $65/player if registered after June 26th.
-Lightning Summer Junior High & High School Program-
The Lightning Summer JH (ages 12-14) & HS (ages 14-18) Program is all about skill development, endurance training, and just hanging out having fun playing basketball! Weekly open gym times will be offered for each age group (separate times for JH and HS) at Millard Community Church (9001 Q Street), starting the week of May 8th, running through July. JH open gyms will be on Tuesday evenings from 6-8 pm (starting on May 9th). HS open gyms will be on Monday evenings from 6-8 pm (starting on May 8th). In addition to open gyms, participation in local summer basketball tournaments is an option for both JH and HS aged players. Decisions on participation in these summer tournaments will be determined by player availability and interest of the players.
Cost for the Lightning Summer JH & HS Program:
$50/player if registered before May 1st, $65/player if registered after May 1st.
NOTE: Registering your son for our summer program does NOT commit you for the fall basketball season, but it is a great way to learn about our program, meet other like-minded homeschool players/families, get to know our coaches, and get a good feel for what we are all about.
