Our OOSH program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney, alongside with professional and accredited basketball coaches.
The very first OOSH Basketball Program!
With the success of our basketball classes that run each term, Little Boomers has created a program specially designed for OOSH! We travel to you and provide all equipment including basketballs and also adjustable hoops to cater to younger children. Our basketball program will not only teach children important fundamental movement skills, but we also incorporate a game at the end of each session. By doing this we're teaching the rules of basketball and allowing children to work together as a team, building their communication skills with each other, all while having fun and learning!
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT YOUR OOSH CENTRE?
Our basketball program skills and warm-up change every 2 weeks. This will ensure children are constantly challenged and not getting bored.
We divide children into age groups to ensure the skills and activities they're learning are relevant and important for their age.
Children's fundamental movements skills will be improved and developed through structured activities and games.
All our coaches are trained and qualified to deliver the OOSH basketball program and have valid Working with Children Checks.
Our coaches are reliable, they will travel to your location to conduct the program each week on a consistent basis.
Thank you Little Boomers for running a basketball clinic during Term 2 at our after school care program. You have engaged and sparked an interest for basketball within our community. The kids and families absolutely loved the program!!! Again thank you so much to coach Laura, coach Lachlan and coach Emile!!!!
