Junior Basketball Coaching- Kids Basketball Classes and Courses

From shooting to dribbling, lay ups to free throws: there’s plenty of fun to be had on the court. This fast-paced game is a great way to hone skill and accuracy. 

Our new pathway currently on offer at Meadowbank Sports Centre and Ainslie Park Leisure Centre caters from 18 months to 9 years. 

Junior Ballers is our introduction to the fun world of Basketball. Children are shown to the basics of basketball with progression to structure and techniques. Each child is given the opportunity to work within their ability and age level but taught in a group environment. Parent participation may be required.

Mighty ballers are confident with boundless energy and this is catered for in the lesson plans. Our classes are fast-paced and increasingly basketball focused, with fun still at the heart, meaning that even new starters easily pick them up. Children begin to understand the importance of team play and small sided games are gradually introduced.

Game Time Baller classes incorporate our rounded learning approach of play, practice and understanding. Play is the motivator and promotes continued and repeated practice. This disguised learning in itself is a powerful tool, however we believe in not only teaching the children how to perform the skills, but also to understand why and where to use the skill in the real game.

This is getting serious! Open to boys and girls, our Buzzer Beater Ballers class is getting closer to the game and full court with natural player progression from our Game Time Ballers class. Participants will develop confidence in using their game, learn defensive and offensive fundamentals, whilst incorporating basic basketball tactics.
