Who is Jump Ball for?
The Jump Ball program has been developed as an enjoyable way to provide kids with a solid foundation of essential basketball skills. It is ideal for children ages 5-8 and all levels of experience are welcome.
All newly registered participants receive a free Jump Ball basketball!
The Jump Ball program is a great for domestic teams that want to join the program in addition to or as a replacement weekly training session. It is a great way for new coaches to learn fundamental training skills, which they can apply in their own sessions.
We strongly recommend that all players join the Jump Ball program prior to joining our domestic competition. Learning and practising the fundamental skills of the game make players far more competitive on court which results in players having a better overall experience.
How does it work?
The sessions begin with the entire group participating in an agility and ball handling program. Participants are then separated into different groups relevant to age and ability. While skill development and an understanding of the game is an important aspect of the program the other thing we are trying to achieve is smiles. Learning to love the game and to just have fun being active is very important at this age. High fives are free and will be distributed very generously by our experienced and knowledgeable coaching staff. The Jump Ball Program is headed by recently retired NBL superstar Adam Ballinger.
