Kensington Kids Character Building and Sportsmanship. This program focuses on building self-esteem, confidence and teamwork in young children. Through the fundamentals of basketball, the emphasis is on character development, not winning, by teaching children to “be the best” that they can be. Utilizing the X’s and O’s of basketball, children learn that playing a sport and winning can be fun; more importantly, developing a child’s character, which provides them with a road map that they can take with them on the road of life. Children will learn the basic fundamentals of the sport, both offense and defense.
