Fees for 2020

$60 for miniball in Term 2 and 3

Miniball is played with 6 players on at each time, you will need 8 players in a squad as it is a pretty intense game fitness wise for the children. The court is smaller and hoops lower than adult basketball. Most basketball rules are similar, except the children wear bands and they have to mark their opposing band player.
