Redlands PCYC Biddy Ball is all about having fun and getting active all year round. New members are welcome at any time and we look forward to seeing your child develop their love for team sports. Biddy Ball is specifically designed to build hand and eye coordination skills relative to basketball and general ball sports for children aged 3 to 8 years old. The Biddy Ball program has been divided into approximate age groups, however children develop at all different stages and allocation to groups is dependent on a number of factors.
BOUNCERS 3 to 4 year olds
HOOPSTERS 4 to 5 year olds
SHOOTERS 5 to 8 year olds
BOOMERS Introduction to under 10’s
The Coordinators for Biddy Ball are Natalie Barber and Niki Valach. These volunteers are happy to help you out wherever they can; the best time to speak to them about your child is before or after training and after game times. You are welcome to call reception and leave a message any time, alternatively you can email Redlands PCYC and someone will contact you in return.
4.00 – 5.00pm Courts One and Two Cost: $3.00
Why is Training Important?
Children learn the basics of basketball by participating in drills and games specifically designed to develop basketball skills. It is important for children to attend training regularly so that they reap the benefits of skill development, while learning dedication and improving their ability to concentrate. Just bring a water bottle and wear pants without pockets (available from reception or any sports store) and you’re ready to join in the fun!

What Can I Do To Maximise My Child’s Experience?
|Arriving ten minutes before game time on Saturday will help the Coordinators allocate children to teams and ensure that games run on time.|
|Redlands PCYC provides playing singlets for your child’s use during games. These are handed out just prior to play commencing and will be collected by the Coordinators immediately after games finish.|
|Please ensure that your child’s shorts don’t have any pockets (for safety reasons). PCYC basketball shorts are available for purchase from reception for $25.00, alternatively your child can wear any shorts without pockets. Please note that Boomers must wear black PCYC shorts.|
|Don’t forget to bring a water bottle!|
|Biddy Ball is all about FUN, and encouragement is the key.|
|You can help us to teach your child about good sportsmanship by clapping every player and displaying positive supporter behaviour. The focus is not on scoring or winning, but about having a positive team experience.|
|Please refrain from running with, or alongside, your child during games as this can be a safety issue.|
