Cubs Clinic


A skills clinic for new players aged from 6-9 years old

Malvern Tigers Basketball Club offer introductory-level instructive clinics for children who will benefit from skills development.

Clinics are run each term over a series of Sunday afternoon sessions and are suited to those children who may not yet be ready to play competition or cannot commit to a full season schedule.

This program will help develop and practice the basic skills of basketball, including dribbling, passing, shooting and preparing your cub to play the game!


Unfortunately, we have had to cancel our 2020 clinics due to ongoing uncertainties around COVID-19 and when it will be safe for all our participants to return. We hope to be back for Term 2, 2021.

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.
