IH Recreation Commission July Open Gym Basketball


Indian Hill Recreation Commission is pleased to host July sessions for open gym basketball at the Indian Hill Middle School gymnasium. Your child is invited to participate as are any new community members or community children that did not play last year.


There is no cost.


The sole intent of this open gym basketball program is to spur interest in the game. We will ask the kids at each session if they would like skill instruction but it is likely that they will simply want to play games. Our volunteers will assist the kids with help to organize and referee games. Parents are welcome to attend and we look forward to meeting you.


Dates for open gym, subject to sufficient participation, include:


Tuesday July 9th

Thursday July 11th

Tuesday July 16th

Thursday July 18th

Tuesday July 23rd

Thursday July 25th


We will have two separate sessions each night:


6:00-7:15 for rising 3rd and 4th grade boys and girls

7:15-8:30 for rising 5th and 6th grade boys and girls


Thanks and we look forward to seeing you in July!

Students will learn to balance a ball on a racquet, carry a ball, bounce the ball up and down, drop-hitting a ball over the net, and hitting a ball softly thrown at them. Students will need to bring a tennis racquet, water bottle, and wear the proper athletic clothing including shoes.



Description:  For the beginner to advanced beginner players that want instruction on the basics of tennis. This course covers tennis court rules, racquet grip, forehand and backhand ground stroke development, volleying, and serving. Basic drills and fun learning games will be used to improve court awareness and ground strokes. Participants will leave with a general knowledge of tennis, basic skills to play the game, and a desire to pursue the game further!  Bring a tennis racquet, water bottle and wear the proper athletic clothing including shoes.
