After School Basketball Programme

YMCA Basketball



After School Basketball Programme

Basketball has become one of the most popular sports in NZ. It is a great sport that promotes the development of children's skills including coordination, teamwork, leadership and communication.

The Ellerslie programme offers opportunities for both the most novice beginner as well as those at an intermediate level looking to improve further. The programme is open to primary aged children 5-13 years old.

Coach Bruce from Evolution Basketball will be leading the programme to develop your children's love for the game and develop their shooting, passing and dribbling skills. Coaching sessions will incorporate a range of fun activities including 5 on 5 games.

Sessions are an hour long and cost only $5. No need to commit to a full term and pay in advance. Simply register on the day to join the action!
