Introduction to Flight Path Program


The Flight Path Program (FPP) is the new competition and development program for the under 8 and 10 age group.  This program will be the next step in your child’s development after Aussie Hoops.  The FPP is designed to ready children for the under 12 domestic competition and filter an even spread of talent across all clubs.  This program will allow children to develop in their own time and not be thrown in the deep end with older; more skilled children.  This will result in an even and more beneficial competition for the children and coaches to develop in.  The structured program will also attract more players and their families into the basketball community.  This will in turn raise the retention rate in the sport and provide a strong competition for the future.

The aim of the development program is to provide a solid foundation for children, referees and coaches, to ensure the long term sustainability of the SBA.  The FPP will be broken down into 3 levels, with each level having competency goals for each child to strive towards. We understand that children develop better fundamentals with qualified coaches and resources which will be provided by the SBA consistently throughout the program.
