Under 12 Hot Shots

Under 12 Hot Shots


Basketball WA’s U12 Hotshots program is the largest and most inclusive development program for junior basketball in Western Australia and is the first introduction into the Basketball WA High Performance Pathway.

The goal is to bring athletes in the Under 12 age (Born 2012 & 2013 for Regional Athletes and Born 2012 for Metro Athletes) from all around the state together, for fun, learning and competition, with content focused around the Fab 5 (Passing, Shooting, Dribbling, Footwork & One on One Defence).

Hotshots Skill Sessions

The road to the Jamboree starts with our Hotshots Regional Skill Sessions. Beginning in February in some regions, Hotshots Skills Sessions for any U12’s athlete, will be held in regional areas across the state. Sessions will teach centralized content that each region is covering around the state and will be conducted by a BWA endorsed head coach, with the assistance of local association coaches. A Metropolitan session will be held in September.

Hotshots Jamboree

From each skill session, athletes from each region selected athletes will be invited to attend the Hotshots Jamboree. The Jamboree encourages competition from athletes around the state and allows athletes to experience a competitive environment whilst learning the fundamentals of the game of basketball in a fun and encouraging space.

The Jamboree camp will expand on the content explored in the Hotshot Skill Sessions. Athletes will be placed in a team and assigned a camp coach for the weekend, they will play multiple games across the weekend, and be encouraged to put their newfound skills in to action.
