Malvern Tigers Beginners Development Squad Term 1 2019

Malvern Development Squad Term 1 2019

The Malvern Tigers Development Squad is for boys and girls plaiyng (or intending to play) U10 basketball in Winter or Summer 2019. The Development Squad is open to both current and new players, and extends players aged 7 to 9 years of age beyond the basics learned in the U8 competition at Waverley Basketball Association and/or our Cubs Clinic.

The Development Squad is divided into two sessions, A Beginner level group runs from 2-3pm and an Intermediate level group runs from 3-4pm at the Sacre Couer gymnasium on Sunday afternoons. The Intermediate level group is targeted at more proficient players who are currently playing in a higher level team or have been playing basketball for an length of time, whereas the Beginner sessions are targeted more at those who only recently began playing.

Emphasis is placed upon developing technical basketball skills, particularly individual ball handling, footwork, passing, layups and shooting.  Players are introduced to key individual defensive and offensive techniques and tactics including through game simulation.  Unlike the Cubs Clinic and U8 competition which use 8 foot nets, the Development Squad uses 10 foot nets and size 6 balls.

The Development Squad sessions are coached by Nathan Ward. Nathan has played over 375 games for the Malvern Tigers and currently coaches U12 and U14 Juniors. Nathan is VJBL accredited and experienced in developing U10 players.

The Development Squad sessions will run every Sunday during Term 1, starting on the 3rd of February with the final session on the 31st of March. Numbers are strictly limited to 16.  The cost of the 9 week program is $135 ($15 per 1 hour session), with net proceeds being contributed back into running the Club.  Participants should bring a ball (size 6, properly inflated) and water.
