Term 2 Programme and new KBA website

We have exciting news... we have a new website!

A big thank you to Soren Haubrock who has very kindly volunteered his time and expertise to put our website together. I think he has done an excellent job. Take a look at www.kba.co.nz and see what you think.

I would encourage you to take a look at the sponsors page, and if you can support these wonderful local businesses, please do. Collectively they have invested in our youth so the kids are able to access professional programmes at a reasonable cost.

We would love your feedback and ideas on future enhancements.

One of the features on the website is our calendar for 2018, where we will highlight the upcoming youth basketball development programmes. A summary of the calendar currently is as follows:

Term 2 Programmes

We are very conscious that term two is a very busy basketball term for the Regional Rep teams and for College Basketball, so we will use this term to focus on skill development and shooting skills in particular. We are very fortunate to have an experienced international FIBA qualified coach, Matt Lint to run these sessions. A big thank you also to Paraparaumu College who have partnered with us to help our youth experience these excellent opportunities.

Monday 7-8:30pm Shooting and Skills - Starts Monday 30 April

Thursday 6-7:30pm Shooting & Skills - Starts Thursday 3 May

Sessions are open to 10-17 yr olds of all skill levels, both boys and girls.

All sessions will be supervised by BBNZ and FIBA qualified Coaches.
