Raiders Hoops Facts:
The Lavalla Hall basketball fit out is now completed and ready for our use. This will be focussed on your U8's competition to provide extra training sessions, including potential games or comps for U8's - both year 1's and Year 2's.
We will be providing balls at Lavalla Hall such that every child will have the right size ball available to them for training.
We will look to select parents and some of our higher age players to support training of our miniball kids.
We will continue to increase investment in coaching mentors and development of 'Raiders' syllabus and game plan - this includes on-line drills and skills
We will add additional components to our U8 Competition to include adhoc games through access to the new Lavalla Hall basketball centre, as well as support for Year 1 teams (Hawks program is focussed on Year 2's).
Year 2's will attend the Hawks program on Tuesday nights, but also have the option to play games or train on a second night at Newman (Lavalla Hall).
Year 1's will only play at Lavalla Hall and will be able to train and/or play up to 2 nights per week depending on the coach and availability of courts.
