Elite Basketball Development Clinic

Step by Step Basketball presents Global Hoops 2017, the first of many elite basketball development clinics in partnership with the University of Sunshine Coast (USC) and USC Rip City Basketball.  On August 12-13, USC & USC Rip City Basketball will host Global Hoops clinics at the USC Stadium to provide young, driven players the opportunity to train, learn, elevate and gain fundamental skills so that they can progress and be successful at higher levels of basketball competition throughout the world. The clinics will be led by world-renowned NBA Championship Assistant Coach Phil Handy of the Cleveland Cavaliers.

“I am extremely excited to partner with Step by Step Basketball and with such a forward-thinking University, which is one of Australia’s top contributors to heightening basketball and elite sport as a whole in Australia,” Handy said. “Being asked to come back to lead a development clinic where I played for many years to help basketball development at an elite under 18 level, is really something close to my heart.

USC Rip City Treasurer Mark Brown said: “The opportunity to present basketball clinics on the Sunshine Coast with coaching of the caliber that Phil Handy brings to the court, made this partnership with SBS Basketball and USC a no brainer for our association as a strong promotion of our sport on the Sunshine Coast and give local players and coaches a taste of basketball training at the highest level. We are excited by how these clinics will boost the profile of Basketball on the Sunshine Coast and we look forward to growing and developing the event with SBS Basketball and USC in the future.”

USC Sport manager Nathan Gordon said: “It has been a very exciting year at USC Sport with athletes having success at the Olympic level, our Sunshine Coast Lightning taking out the Super Netball League Championship and we see the opportunity to host Phil Handy and Global Hoops 2017 at USC as another example of USC helping bringing elite sport programs to the coast. We have had great success in partnering with USC Rip City Basketball to deliver high profile basketball events and help grow the sport at a grass roots level and are excited to add NBA level coached clinics to the list by adding Step by Step Basketball to the partnership to host Global Hoops 2017.”

USC is a leading regional university and, on the strength of its world-class applied academic expertise and sporting facilities, is quickly establishing itself as a leader in elite sport for Australia.

USC Rip City Basketball is a fast growing, successful, and progressive basketball association developing skill and character beyond hoops that prides itself promoting basketball on the Sunshine Coast and providing strong basketball development pathways for all players, coaches and officials.

Step by Step Basketball sets out to help young players achieve their basketball goals as well as their life goals. Many of the approaches and mentalities required to be a successful player on the court can be easily applied for off-court success. SBS Basketball launched Global Hoops in 2016 to help bridge the gap between USA basketball markets and the large basketball platform in Australia.
