Aussie Hoops

 

Aussie Hoops is an initiative of Basketball Australia and the Australian Sports Commission to establish a National Introductory Basketball Program for children aged 5-10. 

 

Aussie Hoops Clinics are run weekly by various Basketball SA affiliated Clubs (like the Bearcats) and at centres across metropolitan Adelaide.  During the program children are taught how to bounce the ball, pass and shoot while playing fun games in the process!
