Banyule Hawks Basketball Club regularly run a range of fun events designed to improve engagement with basketball and improve the skills of players at every level.

Our current list of events include:

Sunday Skills with Michelle Ryan

Coach Michelle Ryan will take small groups with a focus on building core basketball skills and game sense. These sessions will run for 7 sessions across 8 weeks on Sunday mornings. Sessions are open to boys and girls of any skill level. If your child attended a tryout, or was interested in a top team, this is a great way to build basketball skills and game sense to support their goals.

Michelle is an experienced elite coach, who has worked at the domestic (EDJBA), representative (MUVJBL) and Big V competition levels amongst others.

The focus of these sessions will be on the progressive development of skills with a focus on ball handling and control, shooting, scoring, defence and decision making.

This program is highly recommended for players who are motivated to challenge themselves and improve their skills. Commitment to attending all sessions is essential. There will be leniency for those attending our Presentation Day on October 21st.
