Basketball was invented in the 1800s as an activity for people who didn't want to play volleyball but did want to bat around something about the size of a human head. Have old-fashioned fun with this Groupon.

Children learn the basics of basketball, such as ball handling and screening, during six-week programs that run year round. Beyond learning basketball fundamentals, the development programs give students the chance to connect with a mentor, make new friends, and discuss things such as peer pressure.

The program starts on September 22 and lasts for six weeks. For ages 4–8, the program runs on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. For ages 9–14, the programs runs on Sundays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

In the Paint Basketball

Former professional basketball player Mike Robinson—a product of the Chicago Public School system who was drafted by the Utah Jazz and played professionally in Europe for eight years—created In the Paint Basketball to help youths develop as players. His development programs teach the fundamentals of the game, such as shooting and dribbling, but also connect kids to mentors and encourage them to discuss problems they may be having in school with peer pressure or homework.
