We use a process of stations training for this age group where in each training session the children learn a range of different skills, drills and then play mock games during the session.
This age group's official games will be played on a full court where the rules are relaxed. The team can have 4 or 5 players on the court from each team and having teams of this size allows more opportunities for each child and greater spacing on the court.
All ages have 2 full competition seasons and each season is 2 terms of school, Basketball is different to a lot of other sports in that it is played all year around.
To play games every player needs Rockets game shorts and the game singlet will be given to them on game day. Under 9 and Under 10 play with size 5 balls.
Yearly family fee - $45 (this fee is per family and covers everything the Coaches need, Christmas party, things the clubs needs)
Seasonal fee - $245 (if there are 2 or more members in a family each member of the family gets a 10% discount on the Seasonal fees. The fees cover training fees, game fees, insurances, Public liability etc)
