FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


My child has never played basketball before. Will she be ok in attending this class?

Definitely! A lot of our players have never played basketball before and we provide a fun and supportive environment for them to learn the game and get plenty of practice and game time. We have a structured curriculum for each skill level and she will be placed on a team with other beginners to make sure she has the best possible experience.

My child is only 6 years old. How can he shoot on a regular height 10ft basketball ring?

We are different to other academies because we provide lower 8ft rings and smaller basketballs for our younger players so they can develop the correct shooting technique and confidence when practicing new skills.

My child is an advanced player for his age and he wants to be in a team that challenges him.

All players are placed in teams based primarily on their skill level and experience to make sure they are challenged and get the most from every second they're at our academy.

Who are the coaches?

Our academy feature some of Sydney's best coaches with representative, state and international experience. They all share a love for basketball and a passion for teaching the game to younger players. JBA carries current insurance and all coaches have a Working with Children Clearance (WWCC).
