Rising Suns (previously Little Ballers) is a non-competitive league where teams and players who are new to the game can learn the rules of basketball and get used to game situations.
Rising Suns games run under a set of modified rules which are slightly different for each of its three levels. Each level is designed to get players used to the main rules of the game such as traveling, double dribble etc. The games are “officiated” by referees/development coaches in a way where play will be halted when a player violates one of the rules.
As a guide, Level 1 is suggested for players around the age of 9 and under, Level 2 is for players aged 9-10 and Level 3 is for players around the ages of 9-11. Players who are 11 or slightly older may be able to play in the Rising Suns league provided that they are still learning the game.
TAKIN’ IT TO THE SCHOOLS
KDBA is committed to the success of basketball and continues to embrace the support from the Kalamunda and neighbouring communities.
As part of our community approach we launched a new initiative back in 2011 called ‘Takin’ it to the Schools’ where we offer basketball clinics to all primary schools covering basic skills used in basketball via a range of drills and games designed to be about fun and participation.
If you would like to make a booking or enquire about having your school associated with our new program please don’t hesitate to contact the stadium on 9291 7600.
