Our Preschoolers program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney.
The only basketball program in Australia for 3 year old's!
Having difficulties finding basketball classes for kids as young as 3? Little Boomers Basketball has developed the first ever structured program tailored for children between the ages of 3-4. Our accredited Sports Scientists have designed a specialised program that helps to develop children's fundamental movement skills (FMS), in a nurturing and fun environment. We use a variety of basketball skills such as dribbling, shooting and passing to develop co-ordination and gross motor skills.
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT MY CHILD?
We use specialised equipment such as smaller hoops and soft basketballs appropriate for your child's age group
Our program will improve your child's fundamental movement skills such as catching, dribbling and shooting
The games we have designed are adaptable to children of all skill level, even if they haven't touched a basketball before
Classes go for 40 minutes which is suitable for the attention and focus for that age group
Safe and secure: All classes are held indoors and all coaches have valid working with children checks and qualifications

Such a wonderful team environment. Little Boomers teaches kids all the right skills, it’s amazing how much my son has learnt in 2 terms. The lessons are fair, fun & well structured. The coaches mix up the training at the right time keeping the kids intrigued to learn & motivated to return in the following week. Thank you Little Boomers for boosting my sons confidence & making him feel part of a team.
