The children train once a week and can play organised games on a Saturday morning. They don't have to play games but we will support them if they wish to take the next step into games. The Games are played under modified conditions playing across the court with hoops lowered to 8.5’. The lowered hoops ensure the children are able to score and the development of better shooting techniques. These games are played with 3 or 4 players in each team on the court. Having teams of this size allows more opportunities for each child and greater spacing on the court.
Our Saturday game times are 8am, 8.50am and if numbers allow also 9.40am.
We have seen from this age group children leave with an improved skillset of Basketball, greater confidence in interacting with others and the enjoyment of team sports.
All ages have 2 full competition season per year and each season is 2 terms of school. it is wonderful that everyone can play all year around.
To play games every player needs Rockets game shorts and the game singlet will be given to them on game day. Under 8 play with size 5 balls.
