Young Hoopers

Young Hoopers

Our ‘Young Hoopers’ sessions are specialized advanced sessions for children 10-14 years old that have strong basketballs skills and want to further develop their skills with a more focused setting.

Our classes are capped at a maximum of 20 students and have a coach to student ratio of 1 coach for every 8 players, allowing us to break into smaller groups 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. Our sessions run the same program as our ‘Little Hoopers’ classes but are more advanced and required a degree of assumed basketball knowledge and ability. These classes are not offered at all locations and we require all children attending this session to have been pre-approved by our coaches and ideally to have already attended a term of our Little Hoopers classes.
