Welcome to Sharks Aussie Hoops

What is Aussie Hoops?

Aussie Hoops is Basketball Australia’s official introductory program for 5-10 year olds and their families. The national program provides an environment where children of all abilities can achieve on the court and reap the rewards of skill development, enhanced self-esteem, social co-operation and grassroots sports participation. Aussie Hoops introduces children to basketball in a structured and accredited environment that connects our game at the grassroots through to the elite level. Our national coaching curriculum and sequentially-developed program consists of warm-up games, skill activities and modified games all delivered by accredited coaches.

The participant kit will include:

  • Size 4 Spalding Basketball – Modified to suit smaller hands and modelled on Basketball Australia’s official game ball.

  • Personalise Aussie Hoops Singlet – With your child’s name and Local Aussie Hoops delivery centre logo.
