Aimed at 4-10 year olds, Sharks Aussie Hoops program is the perfect introduction to basketball, in a fun and engaging environment.
We will be following a similar format to what we introduced halfway through last year with 3 groups based on experience, age and the goals of the participants.
An introduction to basketball skills through fun and engaging activities, aimed at first time and younger participants.
With a continued focus on fun and engagement, participants will build on the skills they have previously learnt, through slightly more challenging activities.
For those participants who may be interested in joining a team for the next Geelong United Basketball Winter season (beginning around March/April). We will begin sessions with skills based activities and ending with full court games, giving participants a chance to experience as close to a real game as possible to prepare them for when they are ready to join a team.
