U8’s – Training Sessions

Training sessions begin usually from the 1st Saturday in September and run through until the end of June.

There are times during the season that sessions may not be on due to the hall not being available. Notices are usually posted on the club website in advance (Under the ‘NO SESSIONS’ post), but occasionally certain scenarios e.g. weather conditions means there is less notice. We advise all parents/players who attend our sessions to check the club website regularly for any new updates.

Costs: We now operate a block booking system for our sessions. Each block is usually 6 or 7 weeks (it works out at £5 per session – Block payment MUST be paid at the first session of the block that players attend).

What to Bring: T-shirt, shorts/tracksuit or jogging bottoms, suitable trainers, drink(s) (preferably NOT fizzy). Hawks training top (or black and white tops) if you have one.

What to Expect: We use appropriate size basketballs and basket height to help with the development of the players. For this age group we focus on teaching the very basics of the games and work on the main fundamentals at each session. The drills are varied so that kids try different things. The sessions always finish with games.
