Best of NYC: Basketball Programs

Basketball programs in NYC to help your future NBA star bring their A-game, and slam dunk like a pro.

First Shot Basketball School

First Shot Basketball School


With a proud 23-year history, we are the leading basketball program in Queens, New York, with individual classes for boys and girls ages 3-15. Classes are held in a safe indoor environment, with locations in Queens Village, Rego Park and Jamaica Estates.

First Shot offers non-competitive basketball lessons for beginners and competitive advanced classes for more experienced children. Classes are taught by caring basketball teachers (not volunteers) who know how to instruct in a positive way, helping children build confidence while learning. Everything we do is designed to be child sensitive. Not every child is an athlete, but every child wants to look good in front of his/her friends, and be recognized for their effort. We give them the skills and the confidence to feel good about themselves and their performance.

We put the emphasis on the kids and not on winning. Our teaching methods are geared to make each player feel like a winner — inside where it really counts. With only 20 children per class, our low 1-5 coach-to-child ratio ensures each child receives individual attention and improves at his/her own rate while learning. See you on the court!
