Mini Dribblers being added to sports lineup this winter

By John Davis
Community Relations Director

Parents will have a new way to register their little ones for basketball this fall with the Oxford Park Commission. Mini Dribblers is a new program that has been added to the sports lineup and it will be available for registration beginning in November. The program is open for ages 4-6 and it is similar in style to our Mini Kickers and Mini Sluggers offerings that have been in place for soccer and baseball, respectively.

Former Ole Miss and Oxford High standout Erika Sisk will be leading the instructional program for the OPC. Sisk has been involved with youth basketball for several years, and her I-Hoop offering from the summer and early fall was widely attended and utilized by local parents. Sisk has a keen eye for details, and teaching the fundamentals of basketball to our community children is important to her. Mini Dribblers will be held on Sunday afternoons inside the Coach Howell Activity Center.

“We thought this a good way to introduce the sport of basketball in an efficient manner that would benefit both participant and parent,” said Brandon Williams, who worked with Sisk and several athletic managers to come up with this new program. “We feel like this program will teach them needed fundamentals and get their skill levels off on the right track to the point that when they start playing league ball, they are much further ahead knowing the game, and the skills that make the game so fun.”

There will be multiple sessions to sign up for when registration begins. On top of fundamentals and drills, Sisk plans to have teaching games incorporated into the sessions. Each participant will receive a ball and a certificate of completion as part of the registration cost.

Registration details on Mini Dribblers will be coming in the near future. Please stay tuned to the OPC’s website and social media for additional updates on the start of the program.
