Our Central Coast Waves Aussie Hoops program is an all-inclusive Basketball Program, run in line with Basketball Australia framework & provides children in the 5-10 year old age range with a fun and safe basketball experience that serves as an introduction to a lifetime of involvement in the game of Basketball!
In addition to promoting healthy and active lifestyles, the program is a fantastic platform for social development and inclusion - fostering stronger and more vibrant communities and individuals.
Our Waves Aussie Hoops Program has been designed in 2 stages, Waves Rookies and Waves Allstars.
The Rookies program has been designed specifically for your child to learn the foundation of basketball skills, in a safe, inclusive environment where they will develop on their individual basics and team work. This is designed for ages 5-7.
The All Stars program is the next step once your little baller has bounced their way through the Aussie Hoops Program. It is a full court 5 x 5 Basketball program, which is played on lowered Basketball hoops (height: 8 foot 6 inches).
The length of the game also varied in order to accommodate a “Learn on the run” component whilst kids are still getting the hang of the bright lights & excitement of full court Basketball.
Allstars Basketball is for ballers that have completed a minimum of 2 terms of the Waves Aussie Hoops program, or if your child is above 7 years of age.
Note: a skills based criteria may be required before proceeding onto the Allstars Program.
*The overall format of the program is subject to change.
