Wolves Basketball Under 8 - 10
Basketball is a terrific way for kids to start in team sports. They have fun, exercise, learn important sports skills and teamwork and develop friendships.

 

Our development program for Girls and Boys ages who are turning 5, 6 or 7 this year, where they attend a weekly 45 minute training as development players to begin to learn team sport, basic skills and rules of basketball. 

 

Under 8s play in the North Gold Coast Seahawks Basketball League. Players are aged 6 & 7 and teams are mixed boys and girls. We recommend those children new to basketball attend training sessions prior to registering for U8 competitive basketball, however all interested players are encouraged to participate. Competition fees and Uniform information is detailed below.

 

Each Under 8’s season runs across one school term and is a great way for young ballers to dip their toes into the basketball experience.

 

​Did you know that games are played under modified conditions?  

 

  • Teams only have 4 players on the court at any one time, allowing for greater spacing and more opportunity for players to handle the ball.

  • Everyone loves to make a basket, so games are played on lowered 8.5' hoops.  

  • Games are played with a size 5 ball that allows more scoring, and better for the development of sound shooting technique.  

  • Coaches are also allowed on the court with the teams to help direct the players.

  • Seasons are run during the school term and there are 4 x terms (seasons) / year
