HOW DO I START
For Primary School children who haven’t played basketball before, we recommend you start with our AUSSIE HOOPS LEARN TO PLAY PROGRAM.This is not compulsory but recommended and is a fun way to learn some of the skills of basketball.
After Aussie Hoops you may then choose to join one of our basketball club teams and play in our junior competitions.
For High School students and Adults, we recommend commencing in our Junior and Senior Competitions in low divisions and working your way up from there. Competitions are run whole year round and you are welcome to join team at any time provided there are spaces.
JOINING A CLUB TEAM
Penrith Basketball offers competitions in both Summer and Winter for juniors (U8 to U18) and seniors.
If you miss out at the beginning of the season, we try to place all players throughout the season when spots in clubs become available. If you complete the Penrith information form, we will place you on our player waiting list where clubs and teams will be contacted straight away to help you join.
ENSURING YOUR CHILD/RENS TEAM CAN PLAY
For safety and duty of care, all children participating in the Junior Competition must have at least one  parent or a responsible adult present during their game at all times. We encourage all parents to participate and be involved in their child/ren’s games and time here during the Junior Competition.
We also help parents interested in learning a bit more about game rules etc. how to use the clocks and score-sheets, how to become a Coach or Manager and become involved with our association or club.
If you have been involved in coaching, managing or teaching previously, you will find that ‘generic’ coaching skills such as communication, group management, teaching and planning are usually ‘transferable’ between a range of sports. We always welcome new and interested volunteers to help the growth and development of our children through basketball.
