All our sessions are community focused and aim to promote interest in the sport.

The sessions are for those who are just starting out in basketball, or currently play at their school and want to develop their skills.

Sessions are open to all and are held at different venues across the week. They are organised into age groups so that the focus for younger participants is on fun coaching sessions that develop skills, confidence, communication and teamwork. Sessions for older participants will focus more on the opportunity to play in a supportive environment while enjoying the benefit of developing skills, stamina, strength, speed and spirit. All our sessions are inclusive, however if you have specific needs please do contact us so that we can ensure the session is suitable. Although we specify a recommended starting age of 8 we do take younger players if they have the confidence to be able to participate within a group size of 10+ children.
