Beginners aged 5-10:
If your child has never played the game before but is keen to learn in a fun and safe environment, we suggest our Aussie Hoops program. This program is designed for beginners and helps provide the skills and confidence to get ready for our junior domestic competition.
Beginners aged 10-16:
Hoops Academy is an 8-week introductory basketball program for participants aged 10-16 who are new to the sport and want to learn the rules and skills of the game in a serious training environment. It is the perfect preparation prior to playing in our junior domestic competition.
Join a junior team – aged 5 – 22
If you or your child is looking to join a team and play in our junior domestic competition you can do so by joining one of our 15 junior domestic clubs. The clubs are run individually and organise their own teams in our range of competitions.
Some clubs are aligned with schools, while others are based on geographical locations. To view the full list of our domestic clubs, including their best contact for new players click below.
Parents/players can contact a number of clubs directly with date of birth and approximate skill level (beginner, played at school ect) of players wanting to join a team.
You can also fill in the Expression of Interest form at the bottom of this page or email your details to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will place you onto a waiting list which is sent to all of our clubs.
We encourage new participants to follow up with the clubs to help find one with a team for you/your child.
