PiP Basketball Program Develops Skills

Registration is October 6th

Published Sept. 30, 2011 @ midnight

PiP, Players in Progress, is celebrating its 25th year of helping kids be better basketball players and better young people.

Post's program has been around for about ten years and is back again for another eventful season.

PiP is a team of kids (K - 6th grade) that will learn ball handling skills and will work together to execute ball handling routines.  Then they will take their talents and perform during half time at the high school basketball games and perhaps even at the Lubbock Christian University games. 

You can register your child to be a part of PiP on Thursday, October 6th from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the Post Elementary school gym.  Registration fee is $65.00 per child which includes a uniform and a PiP ball. 

If you're unable to register on October 6th, or if you have questions, contact  PiP coordinator Teri Jo Franke at 806-790-3225 or by email at  The late registration deadline is Sunday, October 9th. 

The PiP Camp is set for Saturday, October 22.  This is where the basics of the ball handling and the routines are introduced.  Practices are scheduled for Tuesday nights starting in November at the Post Elementary school gym from 5:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. 

The main reasons for PiP are to create an early interest in basketball and to encourage ball handling skills which in turn improve the lives of the players' by developing character, self esteem and confidence according to the Players in Progress web site.
