Mini Hoopers

Mini Hoopers

Our ‘Mini-Hoopers’ sessions are fun, playful sessions for children 4-7 years old that are designed to help your child build motor-skills, learn the basic skills of basketball and develop their ability to inter-act and work with their peers.

Our classes are capped at a maximum of 24 players and have a coach to student ratio of 1 coach for every 8 players, allowing us to break into smaller groups (i.e. 4- & 5-year-olds together and 6- & 7-year-olds together) for portions of our sessions to ensure students have age and skill appropriate learning environments.

The program runs in line with school term and is split into ten sessions, each focusing on a different skill set. The cost is $275 for the term, however, classes are pro-rated so in the event you join later or there are less than ten sessions in the term fees are reduced accordingly.
