Cubs Clinic FAQs

How often is the Cubs Clinic held?

Three times a year - in Term 1 (Feb-Mar), Term 3 (Jul-Sep) and Term 4 (Oct-Nov).

Can we join Malvern Tigers without attending a Cubs Clinic?

Certainly, however, the Clinic offers the chance to have a go at basketball before making the commitment to join a team. It also allows children to learn some basic ball-handling and team skills so they gain some self-confidence in a friendly environment. This gives them the best chance of being a happy basketballer in their first season.

What age children is the Cubs Clinic aimed at?

Most of our Cubs go on to play in the Under 8 or Under 10 age groups so normally children attending are aged from 6 to about 9 years old.

What do I need to wear and bring along?

All attendees are given a Malvern Tigers branded basketball so all you need to bring is a water bottle. Wear comfortable sports shoes and clothing suitable for doing lots of running.

Who supervises the Clinic?

Cubs Clinics are supervised by Malvern Tigers coaches.
