Our Mini-Boomers basketball 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.
Team sports teach life skills. The earlier your child starts, the better.
Our Mini Boomers program is our introductory learn to play basketball program for boys and girls ages 4-5. In this program, we have developed fun basketball games that will improve your child's basic basketball skills such as dribbling, passing, and shooting. We also incorporate a game at the end of each session so children can become familiar with team dynamics at an early age. This program is a fantastic option to begin your child's basketball journey, especially if they have never touched a basketball before.
