About the program

On-court skills

Your child will be individually assessed and placed with players of a similar age and skill level. They'll receive individual feedback that can be applied to social, school or club teams.

Our basketball program focuses on:

  • skills development
  • drill-work
  • team-building
  • sportsmanship
  • small sided games.

When the final whistle blows at the end of the week-long program, kids will walk off court with improved technique and skills including:

  • dribbling
  • passing
  • shooting
  • game awareness
  • strategy, both attacking and defending.

What to bring

To get set for a week of activities, your child will need:

  • basketball shoes or runners
  • shorts
  • t-shirt
  • hat
  • sunscreen
  • water bottle

Training like a sporting champion means eating like one too! We promote healthy eating and recommend that you pack a balanced lunch for your child.
