BRISBANE BULLETS BIG SHOTS- We are excited to announce a new affiliation with the Brisbane Bullets who will know be coaching our Skills program - Our ‘I Got Skills’ program will now be known as the Brisbane Bullets Big Shots Program. This program is tailored for children that are new to basketball or currently playing in red or purple teams and want to better their dribbling, passing, and shooting with expert coaches from the Brisbane Bullets community coaches. This program is open to age groups U8 to U14. This is a 6-week program that will run at our training grounds Sunnybank Hills State School Tuesdays 6-7pm. ***Please note for 2024, Big Shots training will run in Terms 2 and 4. Terms 1 & 3 will be dedicated to development sessions for specific age groups. 

ELITES program is an invite only and is designed for skill enhancement. In this program we introduce concepts and training that are delivered at state or international level. It is a high intense program that is only for those that are committed and willing.

TEAM training is guaranteed for each team and is solely focused on delivering team concepts and strategies as well as developing team chemistry in preparation for competition. Team trainings are:

● Scheduled anytime from 5pm through to 9pm and generally runs for 45 minutes to 1 hour.

Each team is guaranteed 45 min - 1 hour with their team each week unless there’s a benefit to consolidate trainings at the club/coach’s discretion.

Trainings are held between Mondays through Thursdays in preparation for the competition.

Training times are allocated closer to or when the season starts as there needs to be consideration for coaches and logistics of the players where we prioritise providing the earlier times to the younger age groups.

School holiday training programs are offered for all skill levels and development. Details are advised prior to each seasions. Training sessions are run by Hurricanes coaches and NBL1 special guests. Additional charges may apply.


Currently with the demand for our Hurricanes program, we are located at training facility:

Sunnybank Hills State School – Symons Road, Sunnybank Hills

We allocate the locations of the training to cater mostly for the younger age group being in Sunnybank Hills State School. In some cases, we also work with the coaches to consider their requirement and commitment where they coach multiple teams. Due to circumstances beyond our control and dependant on the number of teams in the club locations may change.

Locations of trainings are also announced and finalised closer to the start of each season.
