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.
For Season 2 – 2021 Rising Suns we will be offering;
Rising Suns Year2/3 &
Rising Suns Year 4/5
Rising Suns is a development program aimed at fun, teamwork & building the skills ready to start in U11’s domestic competition. Season 2 will have full 40 minute games under modified rules with games starting at 5pm Wednesdays.
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.
