Aimed at five to 10-year-olds, CBA runs the national Aussie Hoops program twice a week, which not only teaches the children basketball fundamentals but also develops fitness and social skills in an inclusive and fun environment.

CBA general manager Graeme Pratt said it was a fun program for local girls and boys.

“The program provides an environment where children of all abilities can achieve on the court and reap the rewards of skill development, enhanced self-esteem, social co-operation and grassroots sports participation,” he said.

“Programs like this are important because children learn the fundamental motor skills for future physical activity and sports participation. We have many returning participants and others have progressed on to joined teams in the Cockburn junior domestic competition.”
