Basketball is a popular team sport played by many of our current students. Our programme aims to develop the skills required for success in the game, and the strength and conditioning required to increase fitness levels and reduce the risk of injuries. We work on developing teamwork, interpersonal skills and the theoretical concepts behind the game.
Kingsway is in partnership with Coach Andy Stewart and his team from Coaching Hoops and provide expert coaching as an option that can be taken within a student’s regular timetable.
Head coach of the Perth Lynx, Andy Stewart is one of Australia’s finest basketball coaches, specialising in communication skills and elements of the game to both young and old. He has had experience coaching at a State, National and International level, coaching men, women and juniors.
The students will complete studies in both the theoretical and practical components of the game of Basketball. Coaching sessions will be run at either Warwick Stadium or on the College’s basketball facilities.
Students will get three sessions a week of basketball, two of which will be practical sessions with Coach Andy. One of these will be on a Thursday morning before school and the other will be set during their timetabled double period. The single allocated period will be at school where students will cover aspects such as sports nutrition, strength and conditioning, as well as personal skills practice sessions.
Please note that this course incurs an additional cost of $450 for the full year.
It is recommended, but not a requirement that students who enter this course have some theory and practical skills and experience in basketball.
