BEGINNERS BASKETBALL AT WESTGATE

Saturday Mini Ball Competition

Westgate Basketball Association has kicked off a Mini Ball competition for Girls & Boys aged 5 to 10 years  who do not currently play in a team for a club.  


Entry into our inaugural Mini Ball Competition on Saturdays 10:30am to 1:15pm (for 30 minute session) at Footscray City Primary School's Gym, Corner of Bristow Street & Nicholson St, Footscray.

Cost to play is $5 for Term 1 Aussie Hoops participants, and $10 for those who are not participating in Term 1 Aussie Hoops.  Spectators are free!


Teams for Mini Ball are set according to age & by filling in the form, we can try & allocate each child to a team each week.  

  • Game tops will be supplied each game
  • Games will run for 30 to 35 mins (15 minute halves) with half time free throws x 10 attempts to build up scores
  • Rings will be at a lower height to normal competitions
  • Teams will be mixed gender & will be split according to age groups (depending on numbers for each age group)
  • 1 Referee & 2 Aussie Hoops Coaches will be assigned to lead the teams & guide the players in the understanding of the violations & rules of the game.
  • Rules will be 'relaxed' so that the players will gain understanding of the game's rules
  • No Ladders or on-line scores will be recorded as this is purely for the kids to become familiar with a real game situation.
