  1. Group 1 Monday 4:15 with Jess Aherne & Paige Rowan – Ages 6 to 8

This group is designed for the younger less experienced little giants aged 6 to 6 born in 2012 to 2014.  The program is more designed around fun & is a basic introduction to basketball.  Jess & Paige are experienced players with Geelong rep experience and are great with the little kids & helping them get their confidence.

 2. Group 2 Wednesday 4:15 with Cam Larkin Ages 5 (preppies) ** New Class **

This is a new class especially for our preppies and our younger kids who are keen to get into a fun indoor sport. Cam Larkin is an very experience player with Country Vic experiece. He is also a dad of a 5 year old so has plenty of experience in wrangling kids & how to have fun with them & our wonderful game. 

 3. Group 3 Wednesday 6pm with Kelsey Jordan Ages 7+

Our later class on Wednesday are designed for the kids who are 7+ and are a little more confident.  This program is designed to not only introduce the kids to the basketball basics, but to get them ready to play actual games.  Kids aiming to play next winter (term 2) should consider joining this wonderful program with Kelsey.  Kelsey is a Championship womens player & has a lot of experience & is an excellent teacher of the game.  

4. Group 4 Saturday 11am with Joel McFall – Ages 6+

Our Saturday classes are open for all ages & abilities, ideally aimed at those aged 6 to 9 with limited basketball experience.  Joel is a hit at our clinics with the kids & plays in our championship mens team as well as our u14-CH coach. Joel is one of our most experienced coaches and also our Director of Coaching. Put simply he knows plenty about the game & is a natural leader & motivator for kids of all ages.
