From the very beginning, our philosophy has always been "To instill the love and passion for the game, from a very young age". This is how the name "Little Ballers" came about.
We aim to teach participants the game of Basketball at a grass roots level. With the right coaching and development from a young age, they will learn the correct fundamentals and get the right foundation for this great game.
As the participants progress we have a pathways plan to help them get to the next level, either in a more advanced class or incorporating their skills into a competition to develop their individual and team based skills.
