COB Rockets Skills Development Sessions 2020/21

We are now opening up our booking for mini basketball and skill development sessions for November onwards.

The Rockets  Development Sessions for boys and girls from Under 8s – Under 17s should be fun. The four fundamentals of the game will be taught by our Rockets coaching staff  accredited coaching staff;

– Ball-handling and dribbling 

– Passing

– Footwork

– Shooting 

To emphasise the fun environment good sportsmanship will always be to the core for both coaches and players. Also coaches will encourage the players to step out their comfort zone by letting them know that they expect them to make mistakes and that it is acceptable to do so – as this is how you learn to play the game.

 When you attend a development session bring along a good attitude, respect others in attendance, listen, learn and most of all . . . HAVE  FUN!

Sessions will once again be delivered by our Rockets coaches at Nechells Wellbeing Centre as follows:

9.10 AM – 10.30 AM Under 8s ( 5 – 7 years old ) 

9.10 AM -10.30 AM Under 11s ( 8 – 10 years old )

10.40 AM – 11.55 AM Under 14s ( 11 – 13 years old )

10.40 AM – 11.55 AM Under 17s ( 13 – 15 years old )

As you can imagine our delivery needs to take place under strict COVID guidelines with screening and temperature checking before each session. This does also means that no spectators or parents are allowed into the facility. The places for each sessions will be limited as well ( 20 players Maximum )

Our staff need to effectively manage the numbers and therefore participants are required to book and pay in advance for the session in November and onwards.
