UNDER 8 & CUB BALL
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.
Cub Ball is our beginners program for Girls and Boys ages 6-8 where they attend a weekly 1 hour training to begin to learn team sport, basic skills and rules of basketball. In this program there are no competitive games against other clubs. The cost is $50 / term to join into Cub Ball.
Under 8s are our competitive teams 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 complete a season of cub ball prior to registering for U9 competitive basketball, however all interested players are encouraged to trial. Competition fees and Uniforms are detailed below.
