The SBA continues to review our player development pathway to look for improvements in the way we deliver our programs.
With basketball underway again for 2020, we have re-structured some of our SBA Development programs to make sure we are better catering for our junior members participation and development pathway.
Starting with our beginner programs for 5 to 8 year-olds, previously named “Sabre Cubs” and “Play 3 on 3” have been rebranded as “Bee Ball” and “Bee Ball 3 on 3”. These programs will continue to deliver the same content and are perfect for players new to basketball.
Bee Ball 3 on 3:
Tuesday afternoons 4.00pm – 4.50pm
Saturday mornings 10.00am – 10.50am
Wednesday afternoons 4.00pm – 4.50pm
Saturday mornings 9.00am – 9.50am
Our Saturday Boys and Girls Skills Clinics has been re-branded to “Sabre Cubs”. This will be our new “rep ready” program for SBA domestic boys and girls from 8-10 years of age who are looking to prepare for Sabres rep tryouts which typically occur in September every year. These sessions will run at Mentone Girls Secondary College on Saturday mornings from 11.00am – 11.50am.
Saturday mornings 11.00am – 11.50am
For our morning programs our Sabres Rep Academy begins again with Under 12 boys and girls on Tuesday morning from 7-8am and, Under 14, Under 16 and Under 18 boys and girls on a Wednesday morning from 7am-8am. These programs are open to all Sabres players in our third, fourth and fifth teams.
