This is where it all begins for kids aged 5 - 12 years who have a growing interest in playing Basketball.

Hoop Kids is a skills development programme designed to take Basketball to all 64 Primary and Intermediate schools inside the Wellington City Council boundary, delivering fundamental content to aspiring ballers.

As a key programme member of Wellington Basketball’s ROOT to FRUIT initiative, the team @Hoop Kids will share with young people the idea that learning, participating, team work, and developing new skills through Basketball builds confidence and self-esteem.

Basketball fosters growth and development socially, physically and academically. Hoop Kids offers a safe and fun environment for your kids to make friends, hone their game, get fit, and build confidence through basic skill fundamentals at their own pace and athletic ability. 

We invite all kids wanting to take up Basketball or who want to continue to develop their skills and knowledge of the game, to become a member of Hoop Kids @Wellington Basketball. We have the experience and certified expertise to help develop your child’s game.
