"We can't emphasize enough the important role that parents play in participating in their Childs development before entering into organized play.  It's like teaching your child to learn the alphabet, words, vocabulary and simple sentence structure before expecting them to read a book on their own.  BALL MASTERY plays a crucial role in laying down the FOUNDATION upon which the entire game is taught and learnt.”
