Our Preschoolers 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.
Why it's important to expose your child to a team environment early on.
Our Preschoolers basketball program will introduce your child to team sports through a comfortable and nurturing environment. In this program, your child will develop key social and communication skills as they follow along with our coaches who are more like mentors. Our accredited Sports Scientists have designed a specialized 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 hand-eye coordination, gross motor skills, and more! Your toddler/preschooler will love it!
