Please see Class Etiquette here for full details.


11. How serious is the coaching?

We have developed these classes for your child to have fun, participate and increase social confidence. Skills and techniques will be introduced but we do not force children to learn in a certain way. Our aim is to give them the tools they need to progress further within the sport of basketball and above all to have lots of fun.


12. Will my child play in any matches or competitons against other teams?

We take pride in offering enjoyable and interactive classes tailored to children of various abilities. Our belief is centered around prioritising fun as the core component of our classes, as we understand it fosters ongoing engagement. We do not participate in leagues or arrange competitions with other organisations. However, at the end of each term, we host an event where children can demonstrate their newfound skills in a safe and enjoyable environment. Children within a specified area are invited to interact with peers from other classes in their area and age group.

Here's what to expect based on your age group:

  • Minis: You'll join a larger class with additional coaches and participate in activities similar to those in your regular class.
  • Littles: You'll engage in small, organised matches against other classes in your area, with some flexibility in rules to accommodate learning.
  • Bigs: Similar to Littles, you'll partake in small, organised matches against other classes in your area, with a stronger emphasis on adhering to basketball rules.

To learn more about the next upcoming End-of-Term event in your area, please consult with your coach.
