The Lil Devils program has been running for since 2007 and forms part of the Caroline Springs Blue Devils Basketball Club. The program is designed for beginners aged 5-12, both boys and girls, who are interested but have little to no experience.
The program has also been extended to 2 days, each Tuesday & Sunday, to optimise the basic skills and development of each participant. Our sessions are broken down into 2 halves. In the first half of the session the focus is on socialization and team building activities. Our aim is to keep the kids physically active and engaged with various basketball-related games and drills that develop their motor skills, social skills, and self-confidence.
In the second half of the session, the kids are allocated to a team and will play a modified rules game. The referees provide on-the-court coaching to help the kids learn the rules of the game as they apply the skills they have learned in the first half of the session. This program has produced amazing results with respect to developing positive values, teamwork, and sportsmanship, let alone some very talented basketball players over the years; boys and girls who have played or are currently members in VIC State teams, and even playing in the USA National Collegiate Athletic Association whilst attending University.
The Lil Devils program has recently modified the structure of the program and will be run in line with the start and finish of each school term. This allows more flexibility for parents and children to either continue to participate in basketball or even move up to the Blue Devils for those who’ve made significant advancements or to move on and try a new sport or activity.
