The Hornets Development Program (HDP) has been created to help strengthen our local competition athletes, helping them become more skilled and confident players. Two tiers are offered:-
- The HDP Sessions (developed from our previous Play & Train program) is conducted all year round, each session has been designed to gradually develop both individual and team fundamentals and is managed by a group of specialty coaches, trained in refining and enhancing skills. Bookings are term based, each term includes 9 sessions.
- The HDP Prep4Reps is a further extension of the HDP Sessions, conducted in Term 3 each year in the lead up to Hornets Representative Trials. Prep4Reps provides athletes who are looking to make the step to representative basketball the best chance to extend their skillset in trial-like sessions. While aimed at players looking to attend representative trials it also suitable for those who want to become a more dynamic, competitive and skilled player. Sessions are managed by both HDP Coaches and Representative Coaches.
Only LOCAL COMPETITION (non-representative) athletes are eligible to participate in HDP programs.
