This category is aimed at athletes aged between 7 and 8 years.
In this context, children play and develop their abilities through responsibility, participation and cooperation. It must be a game that, through the act of playing, responds to the needs for movement, energy expenditure, affirmation, and personal fulfilment.
In our view, sport should follow a pedagogical path, in which the activity should be presented to children in a straightforward way, adapted to their ages, and according to each stage of their development. At this stage, the priority will be to develop the psychomotor skills of our young athletes (in a basketball context), since psychomotricity is essential at these ages.
