Junior Development Program
Starting in Term 3 2023, the Junior Development Program focuses on the holistic development of our U12 & U14 age groups (formally U11/U13).
In 2022, FBA moved away from the tradition "representative" model for this age group. Rather than the traditional model of selecting the best and deselecting the rest, we are operating under the development philosophy of "as many as possible for as long as possible".
There are no trials for the U12/U14 age groups which means registrations are open to any players who are wanting to develop further as players! Players will work with FBA best development coaches and will be introduced to new team concepts, individual skill development and other personal development opportunities.
Kiwi Hoops Referee Course
Franklin Basketball is offering a training course for people who would like to become basketball referees.
This course is aimed at beginner referees who do not necessarily have to have any basketball experience. Some knowledge of the game is of course helpful.
There is no cost for this training. Beginner referees will be supported in an encouraging, protected manner and will have the opportunity to develop their skills and move through the basketball New Zealand refereeing pathway. This course is being supported by Basketball NZ.
