Learn 2 Play
Aussie Hoops is the “Learn 2 Play” program for Penrith & Districts Basketball Association where children are taught a range of fundamental basketball skills such as footwork, ball skills, lay ups, passing & catching, shooting and game skills while providing great games, entertainment and loads of fun.
When children have developed basic skills and learnt some simple rules, they can then progress into Under 8’s gametime or join a basketball team and play in the Association’s Junior Competition from U10’s to U18’s Men and Women.
Children receive coaching from our experienced coaches and players who have graduated through the Penrith Association’s Junior program.
Our program provides three participation levels – Years K, 1. Years 2, 3, 4. And Years 5 & 6.
Sessions are conducted three days per week, and we have two coaches allocated to each court teaching children.
All children are catered for and we will try to accommodate all requests if possible.
