Mini Basketball is used to describe the entire youth level under the age of 12. The focus in this age group is to introduce children to the sport of basketball (and sports in general) and help them develop fundamental skills such as dribbling, passing, shooting and teamwork in a fun, safe and age-appropriate environment.
Mini Basketball is divided into 3 age groups: U8, U10, and U12.
|Season 2023-24||Season 2024-25||Season 2025-26|
|U8||2016 – 2017||2017 – 2018||2018 – 2019|
|U10||2014 – 2015||2015 – 2016||2016 – 2017|
|U12||2012 – 2013||2013 – 2014||2014-2015|
At the age of 6 and under, we recommend focusing on a more general approach to sports rather than specific sports. This allows children to develop a broad range of skills and abilities that will serve them well in any sport they choose to pursue later on. By engaging in a variety of general sports activities, children can improve their physical health, cognitive development, social skills, and emotional well-being. This approach can also help children discover their interests and passions in sports and build a foundation for a lifetime of physical activity and healthy habits.
Since it was important for us to start by reviewing the current competitive setup, specifically the Poussin(e)s (U12) and Prépoussin(e)s (U10) championships, we will continue to assess and possibly create new ideas for the younger age groups in the next phase.
Mini Basketball is a fun and exciting way for children to develop a love for the game by having the same opportunities.
