8 and Under Basketball

Bridging the gap between Aussie Hoops to Under 10s!

Basketball ACT’s 8 and Under sessions have been designed for boys and girls who are looking to develop their basketball skills through a fun, safe and inclusive environment. The key focus is to educate all players on; basic game-format, rules, and most importantly, teamwork. All matches will be played with modified rules and adjusted ring height to make for a comfortable, yet competitive learning environment. Some other focal points include passing, ball-handling, foot-work, and of course shooting!

Sessions will be held weekly, with the sessions broken up into skills and matches. Players will be sorted into different teams each week based on experience. This is intended to provide all participants the chance to compete with a wide range of players, while also getting the chance to make new relationships with ‘potential’ club teammates in the future!
