AGE - 10 under mixed

HOT SHOTS Program is designed to cater for your little one's first step's to becoming a basketball player

Packed with a lot of FUN, HOT SHOTS program gives children, parents and families a safe space to meet all year round playing basketball.
We have found after one session you will not be able to take the smile from your child's face and they can’t wait until their next training session or next game. Our cultivating environment is based on 3 core values, Culture, Character and Family. Our emphasis is on our members having fun, learning to be part of a team in a great sport and having confidence to achieve anything they want in life. 


We have seen fast development from our last season players moving up into the older age group early due to their improved skillset and greater confidence in interacting with others. 


All ages have 2 full competition seasons per year and each season is 2 terms of school.


It is wonderful that everyone can play all year around building a community basketball family. These memories will last a lifetime! 

To play games every player needs a HOT SHOTS reversible uniform which you will order upon registration.


HOT SHOTS play with size 5 basketball. These can be purchased from Kmart, Big W or Rebel sports from $5 - $20 for trainings. Game balls are provided 

To help your little ease into the HOT SHOTS group our friendly coaches are basketball gurus who love to motivate and inspire.  Our coaches hold themselves to our associations STAR standards spreading their infectious energy with a nurturing personality.
