After School Hoops



The Cowles Stadium Hoops Academy has been up and running since the stadium re-opened late in 2012, and has had a tremendous increase in the demand. Because of this we’ve managed to increase the number of coaches we have available at the sessions, and can now enrol more interested children. This is a great opportunity for young basketball players to improve their skills with expert coaching in fun practice sessions. The Hoops academy is suitable for both beginners looking to learn, as well as basketballers looking to consolidate their skill level.

From 3:45pm – 4:35pm, Children in Years 0-4 have their sessions.

From 4:45pm – 5:35pm, Years 5-9 are coached (with higher ability players in this age group shifted into the Level 1 class, held at the same time on the other court).

A full term of basketball coaching only costs $85!
