Aussie Hoops

Aussie Hoops is a junior program designed by Basketball Australia as an introduction to basketball for kids aged 5-9 years old. It focuses on basic skills development to give our youngest players the confidence to transition into real game play, (when they are ready). Whyalla Basketball is fortunate to have Local basketball legend Kylie Clothier run our program for us.

The Aussie Hoops program is delivered in 9-10 week blocks, synchronised with school terms. Registration is done online. Cost is approximately $5 a week. SA Sports vouchers can be redeemed for this programme. Balls, singlets and participation packs can all be ordered online when members initially sign up.
Term 1 and 4 are run on Saturday mornings Term 2-3 are run on Friday afternoons.


U12 Girls:
As was agreed at the week 4 grading meeting the U12GA competition has been reviewed. The WBA have decided to do a partial merge of these competitions it is now called "U12G".
The teams have all kept their names and pts from games played.
Sharks inappropriately ...nominated in Div A and have now been graded down they will play a mix of A and B teams for the remainder of the season. Each week 1 Div B team will play a Div A team rather than have a bye. That means this week U12GB R1 are playing there sister team in Div A on Thursday night.
These grades will be split back for finals.

Due to staff unavailability tonight the canteen will not be open, apologies for any inconvenience,
Please ensure you have drinks with you when you arrive to play.

Happy Birthday to our living legend Pat Kemp. From all WBA members have an awesome day. Hopefully the family spoils you rotten.
