Basketball Australia’s official junior game development program for 5-12 years and their families.

Aussie Hoops is all about learning to play basketball in a fun and safe environment. Our national coaching curriculum and sequentially developed program consists of warm-up games, skill activities and modified games all delivered by accredited coaches.

Participants can start Aussie Hoops at any age between 5 and 12 years. It is important to note that the Rookie program is not a prerequisite for the Starter program, and the Starter program is not a prerequisite for the All-Star program. In reinforcing the emphasis of participation and enjoyment, the ability to place participants in the most applicable and comfortable group is designed to provide a positive basketball experience. It is also important to note that the number of staged programs (Rookie, Starter, All-Star) and frequency of delivery may be different at each local centre dependant on the local population, demand for the product and availability of facilities such as a metropolitan association versus a rural association.
