We are in the midst of something we have never experienced before and will hopefully never experience again. Basketball’s on-court hiatus is in place to help us “flatten the curve” of infection and ease the spread of the COVID-19 virus, this is the sacrifice that the community must make. Basketball will not be brought down by the current situation 🏀
Basketball is our history and will remain our future. Make sure you support each other and remain patient. We will be helping you all in the coming months to stay active, engaged and connected. Skills are taught on court, but perfected at home 🏠
Remember: Champions are made when no one is watching 💪
Basketball will be back. We’re not going anywhere.
Being at home doesn’t mean you have to let your basketball skills drop! HomeCourt is just one way you can develop your core basketball abilities, from beginner 👉 pro.
Learn from some of the best NBA stars, take on Trae Young in his own challenge, try to beat legend Sue Bird or see if you can beat Delly’s ball handling skills 🏀
Home time is the perfect time to get game fit 💪 To help, we will be providing inspiration to up your home fitness with some Workouts of the Week!
To kick things off we have a basketball Game Fit Circuit from Core Advantage Athletic Development 🏃♂️🏃♀️
Modify it to your backyard, hallway or nearest footpath! Share your Workout of the Week videos with us using #HoopsAtHome
FOR THE PLAYERS – MCKINNON ONLINE TRAINING CHALLENGE

It’s a simple but highly effective training system for any age athlete.
Pick your level, choose a challenge and get to work by practicing the skill!
You then have the option to compete to meet target scores of your own or set by McKinnon – beat it or repeat it!
Hawthorn Magic Basketball have moved their training techniques to digital platforms, reinforcing “if we stay ready, we won’t have to get ready”.

Towards the end of March, they announced the launch of their Basketball Hawthorn Online Training Program.
