3 WELCOME Kiwi Hoops is the official national junior basketball programme of New Zealand. It uses basketball activities and games to provide fun and enjoyable learning and participation experiences for young people from 5 to 13 years of age. Kiwi Hoops is part of the Basketball New Zealand Player Development Programme. This long term player development model is based on international best practice with the aim of developing all players to their potential and fostering a lifelong love of the game. The Kiwi Hoops programme is designed to be used in any setting including schools, basketball clubs and associations, after school and holiday programmes. It provides coaches, teachers, parents, volunteers and administrators with a systematic and consistent approach to the development of players based on global best practice. Most importantly, it is great fun for everyone! PROGRAMME GOALS To provide a clear and consistent national framework for coaches, teachers, parents and volunteers to use in developing players. To ensure that fundamental movement, sport, thinking and life skills are being introduced and developed in a systematic and timely way. To ensure programmes are designed to be inclusive and allow everyone to develop towards their potential. To provide age and stage competition to practice ratios that will allow our players the time to develop the appropriate skills for their stage of development. To place a suitable level of emphasis on winning as required at each stage of development. PAGE 3

4 JUNIOR BASKETBALL THE STATE OF PLAY Basketball is one of the most popular sports in the world, a true global game that is increasingly popular here in New Zealand. Over 500,000 Kiwis play basketball every year (Sport New Zealand, 2008, 2011). The number of registered players in New Zealand has been slowly growing over recent years. Basketball is the number one mucking around sport and recreation activity for young New Zealanders (Sport New Zealand, 2011). Basketball is one of the top 10 sports for young New Zealanders. Basketball is also one of only two team sports in the top 10 that both girls and boys want to try and do more of (sport New Zealand, 2011). The popularity of basketball has been achieved without any one agreed format or consistent delivery across the country. With the current profile and popularity of the game, now is the perfect opportunity to grow the game. To achieve this growth the sport needs a quality national junior programme that is flexible to meet the needs of players at different ages and stages of development and in different settings. RATIONALE FOR CHANGE Basketball is by its nature a competitive sport, yet before young players can enjoy the challenge of competition, they need to develop the necessary fundamental movement and basketball skills. Basketball, like most sports in New Zealand, places too much emphasis on competition over training and development at the junior level. Global research evidence suggests that at the junior stage, focus needs to be on fun and participation. As age and skill level of players increase the amount of healthy competition can increase appropriately. The delivery of junior basketball varies considerably across the country, including starting age, rules and game modifications. There is a poor transition rate from casual play ( mucking around ) to organised play and programmes. There is a poor retention rate of young players as they move into teenage years and adulthood. There is strong support for clear guidelines for junior basketball to ensure quality and consistent delivery. Coaches, officials, teachers, parents and administrators need more support and training to have the confidence to deliver quality experiences to young players. We need to change the way we deliver our game to young people. PAGE 4

5 THE KIWI HOOPS PROGRAMME Kiwi Hoops is based on modified games and activities that provide fun and success for everyone. It s designed to meet the needs of young players while keeping the essence of the game. Kiwi Hoops provides a clear development pathway for young players as they grow and develop. The focus is on fun, enjoyment and participation for all players, enabling them to experience success right from the start. It provides them with a strong foundation for their basketball future that will help ensure they stay in the game. Kiwi Hoops is the first stage of the Basketball New Zealand Player Pathway. The stages of the Kiwi Hoops programme provide a developmental pathway for young players from ages 5 to 13 as they learn and develop their skills and understanding of the game. Kiwi Hoops has four stages aligned to the following school years: Bounce ages 5 to 7 or Year 1 and 2. Mini ages 7 to 9 or Year 3 and 4. Pro ages 9 to 11 or Year 5 and 6. All Star ages 11 to 13 or Year 7 and 8. The structure, focus and format changes at each stage based on the developmental needs of the players. Movement and fun are the focus for the first two stages, Bounce and Mini. Young players need to develop the ABC s of athleticism, agility, balance, coordination and speed to build a sound platform for learning and developing basketball skills. They are introduced to simple skills through modified games and activities. Bounce the focus is on developing the ABC s through fun and inclusive modified games and activities. Mini young players continue to develop the ABC s and are introduced to basic fundamental and basketball skills through fun and inclusive modified games and activities. Learning skills, strategies and tactics are the focus for the next two stages, Pro and All Star. These are often called the skill hungry years with extensive research showing it is a critical phase for motor development. Children are developmentally ready to acquire fundamental movement and fundamental sport skills that are the cornerstone of all athletic development. Pro young players learn and develop fundamental basketball skills and general concepts through modified games and activities in a fun inclusive way. All Star young players further develop basketball specific skills and concepts. They participate in modified games preparing them for secondary school development and competition. PAGE 5

6 KIWI HOOPS PRINCIPLES Research from around the world shows; Fun and enjoyment are the key drivers of children s participation in sport. Children need to learn basic fundamental movement skills before they can master sport skills. Games and activities need to be based on the developmental age and stage of the children. Small sided games with modified equipment and rules provide more touches and opportunities. More time for training and practice help develop skill acquisition and technical ability. Early specialisation in sports and in positions should be avoided. The five key principles of the Kiwi Hoops programme are based on this international research and best practice. Physical Literacy Physical literacy is the development of fundamental movement skills and fundamental sport skills that enable a child to move confidently and with control. It includes the ability to read what is going on around them and react appropriately. All children need to learn basic fundamental movement skills including the ABC s of agility, balance, coordination and speed. If children do not learn these skills at the appropriate time in their development they may not reach their full potential in the future. Many weaknesses of sport specific skills can be linked to ineffective or poorly developed movement skills. For example, if a child has difficulty skipping (fundamental movement skill) they will struggle to develop the proper rhythm to execute a lay-up (sport specific skill). Research identifies over 30 fundamental movement skills. Basketball is a strong developer of around 15 of these skills i.e. running, jumping, sliding, sending object (passing), receiving object (catching), dribbling, skipping, hopping, landing, dodging, ready position, stopping, balancing. The foundations of successful sport programmes for children are movement and fun. Developing the ABC s of athleticism and the fundamental movement skills in a fun and supportive setting will help ensure children enjoy their experience, become physically literate and have a desire to keep playing and learning. Recognise developmental age Children grow and mature at different rates. This is described as the difference between chronological and developmental age. Research shows that chronological age is a poor basis for athlete development models as the physical and emotional development of athletes between ages 8 and 16 can vary greatly. Coaches need to be able to meet the developmental needs of early, average and late maturing players, often all in the same team environment. Females also mature faster than males on average. The developmental stage of individual players should be taken into consideration when using the Kiwi Hoops programme, and adjustments made to meet the needs of individual players. Coaches and administrators also need to be aware that leagues and competitions that use chronological age for cut-off dates build a natural bias to players born just before the cut-off date. The framework also needs to be flexible to enable players to enter the sport at any stage. PAGE 6

7 Focus on skill development Competitive basketball is often the focus of the developmental stage. Unfortunately global research tells us; Players are not receiving sufficient time for training to learn and master basic skills. The emphasis on winning and use of adult like games has been shown to be the main reason youth quit sport. A balance of training and competition is essential for the development of players. One way to achieve this is the concept of training through competition, essentially using games as training where the result is not important. Research recommends a training to competition ratio of 4:1 for players age 9 to 12. This focus on training allows for development of fundamental movement skills, fundamental basketball skills, decision making and physical preparation. This will better prepare players for competition in both the short and long term than players who focus solely on competition and winning. Play modified games Modified games with suitable equipment and rules improve the game experience and development of young players. Research shows that modified games improve the flow of the game, increase the amount of touches players have and provide greater opportunities for shooting. Touches on the ball are incredibly important in the development of young players. The more time players have to dribble, catch, pass and shoot the ball, the more skillful and confident they become. Adult basketball is a technical game with numerous and complex rules and tactics. Modifying the game allows young players to get on and play without being restricted and confused by too many rules and tactics. It also allows players to make more, less complicated decisions during games and training, improving their overall decision making ability. Many other sports in New Zealand and around the world are seeing the benefits of modified junior games. Fun, enjoyment and development of players should be the focus rather than the result of the game. Avoid specialisation Early specialisation in a late maturation sport like basketball has been shown to lead to; Lack of basic fundamental movement skills. Limited sport specific skills and preparation. Increased boredom and frustration. Early burnout and withdrawal. Specialization is an issue for both specialization in one sport and within a sport when players are forced into specific positions or roles. It also occurs in training sessions where coaches focus more on the team rather than player development. We need to develop global players that have both fundamental movement and sport skills to play every position. This provides children with the skills to play at the next stage of the pathway and/or stay involved for life. Participation in other sports during this foundation stage helps players develop the essential movement and sport skills. PAGE 7

8 THE FOUR FOUNDATIONS OF PLAYER DEVELOPMENT The BBNZ Player Development Programme takes a holistic approach that develops not just the physical skills and attributes of the player, but also their mental, cognitive and emotional development. Coaches need to be able to relate to their players and build positive mental, cognitive and emotional skills. These go hand in hand with physical movement and sport skills. The four foundations of the Kiwi Hoops programme are: 1. Fundamental Movement Skills. 2. Basic Basketball Skills. 3. Thinking Skills (mental and cognitive). 4. Life Skills (social and emotional). Each of the Kiwi Hoops stages is built around developing these foundations: MOVEMENT SKILLS THINKING SKILLS BASKETBALL SKILLS LIFE SKILLS Agility, balance, coordination, running, jumping, sliding, sending object (passing), receiving object (catching), dribbling, landing, skipping. Enjoyment, confidence, concentration, goals, social support, competition management, commitment. Ball handling, dribbling, passing, catching, shooting, offence, defence. Leadership, responsibility, self-reliance, trust, communication, self-belief, teamwork, fair play. Movement skills The ages of 5 to 11 are important years for developing movement skills that underpin physical literacy. The Kiwi Hoops programme introduces the fundamental movement and fundamental sport skills progressively to match players physical, social, cognitive and emotional development. Basic basketball skills Basic basketball skills include stance, footwork, ball handling, dribbling, passing and shooting. As players develop basic skills are refined and new skills are introduced such as one on one skills, getting open and defensive stances. Thinking skills (mental and cognitive) Players begin to make simple decisions and problem solving, for example should I pass or shoot? Should I dribble left or right? As players develop thinking skills new concepts are introduced such as playing principles around offensive and defensive concepts. Life skills (social and emotional) Players begin to understand the basic principles of fair play and being a good sport. Players are also learning what it means to be part of a team and working as a team. Players begin to develop basic life skills like responsibility, self-belief and trust. A key focus for players during this foundation stage is being a good sport and being the best they can be. PAGE 8

9 HOW TO USE THE KIWI HOOPS PROGRAMME The Kiwi Hoops programme is designed to be used in any setting including schools, basketball clubs and associations, after school and holiday programmes. The programme is flexible to fit the needs of both class or group programmes and teams playing in local leagues. The four stages of the Kiwi Hoops programme are outlined over the following pages. Each stage outlines session formats that include activities and games. These are ideal for class or group programmes. The session plans can also be used as practice sessions by coaches of teams who also participate in school or association leagues. Each Kiwi Hoops stage has a Session Guide that includes five session plans. Progressions are included so activities can be repeated for additional sessions. Coaches are also encouraged to create their own session plans once they have completed the first five. Each stage of the Kiwi Hoops programme includes recommended session lengths and game formats for that age group. These have been developed by experts as the recommended best way to develop young players. Local flexibility may be needed due to available time, space, equipment and conditions. We encourage use of these national guidelines where possible. PAGE 9
