becoming a very popular sport in the United States. The game requires

station requires its own shooting strategy, with each player shooting up to
5 times per station. The game is similar in concept to a miniature golf
course and can be played by both young and old alike. Here is your chance to
show the little ones how to play basketball from a strategy perspective
without worrying about what old father time has to say about it.
