The RedCity Cubs Program is an integral part of the RedCity Roar’s player development program based at the Redlands PCYC. It sits above the Roar Ready Schools Program and funnels interested participants from schools into the competition venue and prepares them for games.
The Cubs are aged from 3 to 8 years of age and are introduced to the game with an age appropriate training program (Wednesdays 4.00pm to 5.00pm) and are broken down into groups:
Bouncers – 3 to 5 y.o.
Hoopsters – 6 to 7 y.o.
Boomers – 7 to 8 y.o.
The groups also play 3 x 3 games on Saturday 8.00am to 8.50am on lowered hoops and modified rules. This format fast tracks their development as each child get more touches of the ball, more shots and more space make success more likely which help keep them motivated.
