Kingsway is pleased to announce the introduction of a specialised Basketball Programme that will commence in 2019.  The College will partner with Coach Andy Stewart and his team from Coaching Hoops, to provide Basketball as an option to 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 communicating 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. 

Kingsway students now have the opportunity to choose Basketball as an elective, and incorporate it into their weekly timetable.

Students in Upper School will have two practical sessions per week with Coach Andy Stewart and his team; one during their scheduled House Sport class on Mondays, and one on a Thursday morning before school.

Students in Years 7 – 10 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.

To participate in this elective will incur an annual cost of $440. For any queries please email sport@kcc.wa.edu.au
