New Spiders Academy (12 to 14's) starting 2020

These are development programs for boys and girls aged between 8 and 14 years of age who would like to be future Spider Representative basketball players with these being intermediate level skills programs.  Academy Skills consist of basic and advanced fundamentals; and fitness and conditioning aspects relevent to under 12 and U14 representative players.

Pre-requisites for children participate in Spiders Academies:
Friday Academy program - basic skills and game play understanding (at least two terms of beginner classes)
Sunday Academy program - currently playing local competition and/or school basketball (at least two seasons)

Children from other sports who have attributes or skills that may give them a competitive advantage (e.g. height, athleticism, speed, strength, good hand-eye co-ordination from participating in other ball sports) or a background in gymnastics or similar are also encouraged to attend as these are good foundation sports for playing basketball.

There are two progams conducted each school term (all year round):
