The Academy is run by two high profile basketball coaches, Alf Arlidge and Todd Marshall. The boys are trained to perform at an elite level. The Academy has helped produce numerous national and regional representative players and the King’s junior team, benefactors of this Academy, finished third in the South Island tournament in 2013.
The players work on:
- Passing and shooting skills;
- Learning and running plays;
- Fitness and nutrition;
- Teamwork and strategy.
The Academy runs in blocks throughout the year on Fridays from 1-3pm.
The cost for the programme is $40 per half year, which encompasses the transport to the Edgar centre and top of the range equipment.
