Miniball Info

What is Miniball?

There is a special program that has been devised for U7 year olds called Miniball, all the children in this program are aged from 5 years old.


The boys and girls use a size 5 ball as it is lighter for them to throw, bounce and shoot with. The rings are left at the standard height, it is an effort to get the ball through the hoop, but when it happens it is so exciting to watch.


Sometimes it takes the mini Lakers three seasons before they get a goal!  No experience is necessary, and it is a wonderful way to get your child involved in a team sport.
