In partnership with Te Puni Kokiri the Nifty Niners programme is a fun basketball experience for our youngest tama and kōtiro players (5-9 years old) wanting to give basketball a go. Most participants will not have played basketball at a competitive level or are beginners. This project encourages participation, fun and building of fundamental skills – hand-eye co-ordination, running and jogging in lines, vision in close and far quarters, jumping and foot movement. The players attend clinics and training sessions with some of our most experienced volunteer coaches held over several weekends and whānau participate in the fun. Pīki mihi ki a Matua Veni and Quentin.
