At Diamond Valley Basketball Association, we provide a great range of programs to give our junior athletes every opportunity to improve their game.

Development Programs

Ford Aussie Hoops (4-10 years old)

Basketball is an enjoyable sport for all young children to get involved in, it promotes physical activity, strengthens hand eye coordination, encourages participation and helps to develop confidence due to being a part of a team. At DVBA we understand how daunting it can be for young children who want to have a go but are intimated that is why we have created our Lil’ Eagles x Ford Aussie Hoops programs to give each child a chance to develop at their own skill level.

Food Aussie Hoops is a program that has been specifically designed for children 4 – 10 years old (2018-2013 born). We have designed this program to give young children the opportunity to learn and develop their ball skills in a safe and friendly environment. We want to ensure that each child grows in their confidence whilst learning new skills from qualified coaches that are passionate about working with children and help grow their love of the game. This program has been developed to provide an introductory experience to the game.

Core focus:

  • fundamentals of basketball
  • basic skills
  • how to play in a team
  • basic rules of the game
