Our Little-Boomers program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney, to ensure we are providing the best possible program for children.
Establishing the foundation for your child to become a GOOD role model.
Our Little Boomers program is our most popular basketball program for boys and girls ages 6-8. In addition to building your child's fundamental basketball skills we also develop more challenging gross-motor movements such as the "lay-up", which requires a high amount of coordination. We also implement throughout the program "CAPTAINS" who are selected each week, that display attributes of a good role model, which are important for children to learn early on.
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT MY CHILD?
Fantastic opportunity to reduce screen time through the inclusion of a team sport and learning fundamental basketball skills.
Safe and secure: All classes are held indoors and all coaches have valid working with children checks and qualifications .
We will develop your child’s core basketball skills such as dribbling, passing and shooting and provide a game at the end to put those skills into practice

The games we have designed are adaptable to all children making them easy to learn, fun but also challenging at the same time
It's vital at that age (6-8) that children have a positive experience with team sports so they can become a better team player in the years to come.
