Our 5v5 program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney.
Prepare for Proper Basketball Competitions with our 5v5 Program
Our junior basketball competition night is designed to build your child's game skills to prepare for a local club or just to improve their skills and fitness. It is also a fantastic way to get active and burn energy, as playing full court games is intense! Our coaches will help teach your child all the basketball rules so that they are prepared to play in a proper competition. They will also learn other important components such as decision making, positioning and how to become a good team-mate. View this program as a bridge before joining a real competition, where there is much more pressure.
