These sessions will be run by our Elite Coach Michelle Ryan. To register just choose the clinic that is most suited to you. The clinics are:

Clinic 1 – Thursday 5th July – OFFENSIVE SKILL DEVELOPMENT

This session will provide opportunities for players who are seeking to improve their offensive skills, including offensive rebounding, passing and on-court positioning, as well as shooting.

This session is ideally suited to players with good fundamental skills and strong defenders who are looking to round out their skills offensively.

Please note – this session is not a shooting clinic or targeted specifically at players with strong offensive skills. These players should consider attending Session 2.

Clinic 2 – Friday 6th July- DEFENSIVE SKILL DEVELOPMENT

This session will provide opportunities for players who already understand offensive playmaking and skills (particularly shooting) to develop defensive skills to the same level including playing man-to-man defence, defensive structures, rebounding, etc.

This session is ideally suited to players with good fundamental skills and particularly shooters and offensive players who will benefit from rounding out their skills.

Clinic 3 – Monday 9th July– BASKETBALL FUNDAMENTALS

This session is aimed particularly at younger players, or those who are new to the sport of basketball. The session will cover a range of basketball fundamentals and skills in a fun and encouraging environment.

The cost of each clinic is $50 for the day. All clinics will be held at the Macleod NETS Stadium and the canteen will be open during the lunch break. All participants should bring a basketball, water bottle and snack or a packed lunch.
