Welcome to Mini Ballers: Learning Through the Power of Play.

Updated: Aug 24, 2023

Introducing our Blog

Welcome to the Mini Ballers Blog: Where Fun and Basketball Collide!

Hello Mini Ballers Community,

Ready for an exciting journey? We're thrilled to introduce the Mini Ballers Blog – your go-to spot for all things mini basketball and movement FUNdamentals. Whether you're part of an energetic family with kids aged 1-8 or simply curious about the world of active learning, you're in the right place.

Our minis practice teamwork and skill-building, all while having a blast. And parents, I'm alongside you on the rollercoaster ride of raising your minis. From heartwarming snuggles to toddler tantrums, I get it. I also understand the struggle of discovering quality programs and the joy of watching them thrive. I am also fully aware that attending a 30-minute swim class, or 45-minute lesson with young kids is seldom a walk in the park. So, who wants to encounter disappointment after all that effort? This is precisely why we are dedicated to providing a dependable, top-notch program that assures you're in capable hands, every time.

Blog Author- Our Founder

You may be wondering, who is writing this blog?

I'm Amy Barlow (Ogidan), the Founder of Mini Ballers, and currently, hands-on in every aspect! I currently hold the role of Chief Officer of EVERYTHING. Starting a business – it's been an eye-opener in terms of how demanding it can be. Perhaps you've experienced it too! I'm still wrapping my head around it all. That's why I'm immensely grateful for the incredible coaches and support team that have joined me on this journey to build a thriving community.

With over two decades of basketball involvement – as a player, and coach, and with a genuine passion for the game – I bring a wealth of experience. Combining this with my role as a mom to my three minis, aged 1, 3, and 5, I'm truly excited to introduce Mini Ballers to kids aged 1-8. This blog is our space to share, connect, and grow together. Brace yourself for laughs, parenting insights, and stories of mini-athletes turned pros. As well as stories from the parents in our own Mini Ballers community.

Game Plan- What to Expect

In the weeks, months, and years ahead, get ready for an array of engaging topics. We'll cover everything from nurturing teamwork skills in toddlers to guiding older kids through the mastery of layups – we have a diverse lineup prepared. And throughout this journey, I'll be your guide, skillfully navigating the organized chaos, surrounded by an exceptional community of individuals just like you.

My middle daughter was at our media shoot back in November of 2022, just before launching.


Thanks so much for joining us on this adventure, for believing in the magic of early sports education, and for being part of the Mini Ballers Community. Together, let's nurture a lifelong love for basketball and movement, one Mini Baller at a time.

Stay tuned for more!

Yours in Hoops!

Amy Barlow
