What do I wear and bring to Frogs Beginner Basketball?
Participants should be dressed in shorts and wear runners or basketball shoes. Bring your named size 6 basketball and a water bottle is a good idea too.

Why should we do Frogs Beginner Basketball?
Frogs Beginner Basketball is a great fun and pressure-free way for children 5-10 years of age to start learning basketball as a lead-in to joining a team when they are ready. During the middle of the season, at times, we cannot take more players to our teams however kids can still get started with basketball with the Frogs Beginner Basketball program.

What do we do doing Frogs Beginner Basketball? Will it be suitable for my child?
Frogs Beginner Basketball is a week-by-week program similar to Basketball Victoria run Aussiehoops and is lead by qualified and experienced coaches. All skills are introductory and look to teach the fundamentals of basketball in a fun and casual atmosphere. Participants are placed in groups, when possible, with other participants of a similar age / skill to learn together.

What if my child doesn’t like Frogs Beginner Basketball?
Firstly you can start by simply signing up casually and paying on the day. If your child doesn’t enjoy our program after 2 sessions you don’t have to persist. However we do recommend 2 sessions as children can often be very nervous at their first session especially if they are unfamiliar with other players and the coaches.

How do I register?
All participants must be registered prior to their first session. Registrations can be completed only online. Each term returning participants are required to register again.

How do I pay?
Frogs Beginner Basketball does not offer cash payments on the day. All registrations must be completed via the website.
