The Little Lancers program is designed to introduce young players to the game of basketball and build their skill level through drills and games. This is an excellent opportunity to learn, have fun with college players, and prepare for the upcoming season.  Registration is currently open for grades 1-5 and the cost is $30 per participant.

The men’s and women’s basketball players, under the direction of the MMC coaching staff, teach basketball skills to grade school girls and boys.

Participants will work on individual skills of passing, ball handling, dribbling, shooting and footwork. They will also receive instruction on individual and team defensive and offensive concepts.

Each participant receives a Little Lancer T-Shirt to be handed out during the final instructional session, and an official Little Lancer membership card for free admission to all Mount Marty College Lancer home basketball games.
