The flagship program of CSBA Learn to Play, our Rookie class is for young hoopers aged 5-8 years old looking to take an exciting first step down their basketball path. The program offers five to eight year-olds the chance to work with experienced coaches on the very fundamental aspects of basketball. This is a non-competitive, supportive environment which uses a lot of game play to help these kids fall in love with the game.

The Starter program at CSBA invites 9-12 year old players to build on their foundations by developing a strong set of game-ready skills and a deeper understanding of basketball.

Learn to Play Tip-Off
Tip-Off is our program that focuses on bridging the gap between practice and playing. The class consists of guided games organised CSBA coaches, in small-sided or full-sided game format. Our staff act as a coach-referee hybrid, to ease the players into competitive basketball in a way that allows them to gain confidence and experience moving forward with the sport.

** Due to the popularity of our classes, we endeavour to inform current Learn to Play participants about the following term via email (email will be sent to the email registered to profile). This does not guarantee automatic enrolment for the upcoming term.
