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 enroll 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.

– 5 years old – 8 years old – 3:45pm – 4:35pm
– 9 years old – 13 years old – 4:45pm – 5:35pm

The Pioneer Hoops After School Academy is a seven to eight week program run by Pioneer Basketball Club on Tuesday afternoons during term at Pioneer Stadium.

Focus: Introduction and development of key fundamental skills (dribbling, passing, defense, shooting, footwork) with small sided games at the end of the session (1v1, 2v2 & 3X3). We will use game-like situations for participants to learn the rules of basketball and put their skill in practice.
