Our Junior Hoops sessions are designed to introduce younger children to the game, to give them a positive and fun experience and to coach them in the basic skills of basketball. Out aim is that, by the time they are ready to graduate to the older group at the age of 12, they will be competent in the basics and well on their way to becoming core members of the squad.
We split our junior players into U10's (years 6 and below) and U12's (years 6 and 7). Across these ages, children vary widley in terms of their ability and we don't divide them strictly on age but rather assess which group they would be most at home in. A child in the U10's can move up to the U12's as soon as they have a grasp of the basic skills and concepts of the game. We suggest you bring your child for some taster sessions. This will allow them to see how they enjoy it and also give the coaches a chance to assess which group they should be in. For the U12's, we suggest you initially bring your child to the Development Team session (see below).
Costs are £20 a month but we offer three free sessions to those who would like to come and try it. After that we will ask you to either sign up using the link below or stop attending.
Due to significant growth in player numbers the club is now offering 2 sessions for the U12's age group (school years 6 and 7) each Sunday
