Little Rippers is a fun and exciting program that allows children to be introduced to the game of basketball. Basketball is a fantastic sport that can be played all year around, indoors or outdoors and you don’t even need a hoop!
The Litter Rippers program uses a “game sense” approach where children learn basketball through playing lots of games and activities.
Little Rippers is for all boys and girls up to 11 years of age and ALL abilities!

Little Rippers program (Boys and Girls – 4 to 11 years) – This introduction to basketball program aims to teach children between the ages of 4 and 11 years the skills and rules of the game. Players will have fun learning how to shoot, dribble and pass as they begin to play actual games of basketball. Players are taught how to enjoy the sport and play the game fairly, simultaneously preparing them to join a team in one of our junior club competitions (see below). This program is delivered at USC Sports Stadium in term blocks (approximately 8 weeks) on a Saturday morning, running during the school term but not during school holidays. All NEW participants will receive the Little Rippers pack which includes a basketball, reversible singlet and draw-string bag.
