Raiders Hoops Facts:
The Lavalla Hall 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 - Skills training and games are played on Tuesday evenings between 4.15 and 6.15 (2 time slots) at Bendat Stadium.
Year 1's - 1 hour sessions consisting of basic skills and game play will be run weekly and be held at Newman College - Lavalla.
