Eltham Wildcats Basketball Club has a range of different begginer and introductory programs for players of all abilities and ages. The variety of programs provide a pathway for beginners and elite players to improve their basketball no matter the level of skill.

Our programs provide an opportunity for children to get involved in an all year round indoor sport. These programs use a ‘game sense’ approach teaching participants the basic skills, rules and fundamentals of basketball while playing fun games and activities. Programs are ran during each of the four school terms.
