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 nine to twelve 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 launches in 2022 with the intention of bridging the gap between practice and playing. The class will consist of guided games organised CSBA coaches, in small-sided or full-sided game format. Our staff will 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.
