Cubs Clinic FAQs
How often is the Cubs Clinic held?
Clinics are held four times a year. Each clinic comprises 7-8 Sunday afternoon sessions depending on term dates and public holidays:
- Term 1 (Feb-Mar),
- Term 2 (Apr-May),
- Term 3 (Jul-Sep), and
- Term 4 (Oct-Dec).
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.
