Basketball History and Theory: The Art of Unity, Discipline and Fun (9-12)

In this Immersion, students will learn the history, fundamentals and evolution of the game of basketball. They will gain an understanding of basketball’s role in reflecting and effecting social change in the United States. Along with a lecture series, students will participate in practices, games and video sessions. These events will be geared towards elevating the understanding of unity, discipline and fun on and off the court. Basketball, in this way, becomes a metaphor for how to live a selflessly artistic life. The immersion will involve playing games against different high schools in the area, as well as several opportunities for students to visit and experience different college basketball environments in Southern California. *Open to athletes on the Boys’ Varsity and Junior Varsity Basketball Teams Matt Sargeant
