The Aussie Hoops program uses a “game sense” approach where children learn basketball through playing lots of games and activities. Aussie Hoops is for all boys and girls up to 10 years of age and ALL abilities. Basketball is a fantastic sport that can be played all year round, indoors or outdoors and you don’t even need a hoop!
