Hoop Club Kapiti has developed an excellent Junior Basketball Programme on the Kapiti Coast under the direction and guidance of Head Coach - Angelo Robinson.
The programme called Hoop Club Kapiti which has been running for 21 years on the Kapiti Coast caters for young ones from the age of 5 years through to 17 year olds. The main emphasis is on grass roots development, "Back to Basics" and allowing all players from any background, ability or culture, the chance to participate in the game and the programme. A core focus with the children & young adults in this programme is also the teaching and learning of "Life Skills".
Over the last 21 years Hoop Club Kapiti has been operating we have also had many players who have come through this Coaching Programme who went onto to be part of Kapiti Basketball Association's Representative Teams, New Zealand Basketball Academy Teams Basketball New Zealand Teams and players gaining Basketball scholarships to USA Universities.
Coach Angelo Robinson is passionate about this Junior Coaching Programme and the future development of our youth here on the Kapiti Coast. We also believe that more so than ever our young ones need positive and safe activities that also offer good grounding for the future.
