Our aim is to provide a state of the art basketball development
program, which progressively teaches our students the skills and
strategies of the game. We also aim to continually educate our coaches
in the latest techniques, strategies and concepts of the game.
Our year 7 & 8 groups are primarily engaged in skill learning and
development. Students in these years spend a cinsiderable amount of
their training time in repetition of the individual and small group
fundamentals. A minor amount of their time is spent on team
structures, as they are playing a limited game schedule. Students are
also engaged in speed work, skill testing, and physical testing
at this level. Time Management and Westfields Sports philosophy of Play
are areas of coverage for year 7, while year 8 cover a Score Table
course, Nutrition, and Sports Psychology modules.
Our year 9 & 10 squads enter a more diverse stage of the program.
Members of these squads are often chosen in school open teams, thus
increasing timecommitment, We continue the progressive
process of skill learning and development, and place more emphasis on
the building of team structures. There are also more competitions
available to this group. Strength training enters the curriculum and the
speed work is developedto another level. We also include a Sports
Psychology, History of Basketball, Referees Course, and more in depth
X's and O's modules into year 9. While year 10 have additional
modules in recovery, Nutrition, Referees Course, Score Table, Sports
Psychology, and Media and the Elite Athlete.
Our year 11 & 12 squads complete a broad range of activities which
entails regular participation in competitions, an advanced stage of both
strength and speed training. We will also continue our sports
psychology work and physical and skill development area also.
Here we have students who are able to perform a wide range of skills
on demand. This is the pinnicle of our achievement. We hope that as
the students leave our program, that they are able to fit into any
playing system that they have the opportunity to trial for.
We generally enter all worthwhile competitions that are available to
and suitable for us, with an upward limit taht would prevent a
negative effort on studies. There are more competitions available to
our older groups, however we are always trying to develop competition situations for our juniors.
