Basketball

House Basketball



The goal of our basketball program is for the children to have fun, improve their basketball skills, learn how to work as a team, and learn how to deal with winning and losing in a positive manner that promotes good sportsmanship. The Falls Church Recreation and Parks Department offers co-ed clinics and league play for children of all ages.
