Bruins Basic Skills Program

 

 

Welcome to the Bruins Skills & Development Program. We have introduced classes based on skill level and age range to better provide your child with a pathway through skill development, competition and beyond. 

We offer 1-hour classes that provide our athletes of all ability levels from the ages of 5-17 years with the opportunity to learn the basic skills and rules of   basketball in a fun and friendly environment. Our classes focus on developing our athlete’s fundamentals including dribbling, passing, shooting, footwork, defence and a basic understanding of game concepts. The classes run alongside the school term for approximately 10 weeks.

 

It is our goal to place all of our students on their own unique pathway through our programs starting with: 

 

Aussie Hoops

For children aged 5 to 7 we offer the “Aussie Hoops” program in which  Bankstown in conjunction with Basketball Australia aim to introduce the sport of basketball for the first time. These sessions include warm-up games, Skill activities and modified games with an emphasis on FUN and participation.

 

6 - 10 Years

Our 6-10 year olds can begin at the “Starters” level and can progress in to our more advanced “Cubs” classes which provide new lesson plans and more     advanced concepts and challenges.

 

11 - 17 Years

For our older athletes, ages 11—17 our classes begin at the “Rookie” level.  Upon evaluation, athletes are able to move into “Hoopsters” classes which  provide new and exciting challenges. This is then followed by our “Rising Stars” classes which aim to prepare our athletes for Junior Local Competition (see page 5) and further development such as our High Performance classes.

ITP / HIGH PERFORMANCE PROGRAM

The Bruins Intensive Training Program and High Performance Program are designed for those athletes who play in our Local Competition or in our Representative teams and are looking to improve their skills and overall game with an extra practice session each week. Our sessions are run in an intense environment and structured similarly to a Representative Practice. These sessions provide a mix of individual skill, team concepts and understanding of the Bruins style of play.

These classes often feature drills and small-sided games that many Representative teams and professional teams use in their weekly sessions. These drills are broken down to explain the “why” and purpose of the skills necessary to perform the tasks and how they relate to competition situations.
