Ford Aussie Hoops

Ford Aussie Hoops is the perfect introduction to the world of basketball for children aged 5-10.

Whether your little one is a seasoned basketball fan or simply looking to get out there and give it go, we have no doubt they’ll have an absolute ball when you register them in our junior development program.



Why Ford Aussie Hoops?

We get it. As a parent, it can be incredibly overwhelming to find a sport that’s right for your child.

So you might be sitting there asking yourself, ‘why basketball?’.

Well, that’s easy.

Basketball is everyone’s game.

No matter what age or ability, gender or background, our sport offers a wide range of programs, competitions and development pathways that will have them playing the game for years to come. For our little ballers, Ford Aussie Hoops is the first taste of the game.

Throughout our programs they will learn:

  • Skill development through tailored programs delivered by nationally certified coaches: how to run, shoot, dribble, pass, bounce and generally just have a lot of fun!
  • Social co-operation and teamwork by meeting new kids and participating in weekly activities that encourage team building and social play.
  • Did we mention it’s fun? This one is very important to us. We want to foster a love of the sport, so it’s important that every child leaves the court happy and with a big smile on their dial.
