Kids In Perth (KIP) Tips:


If your child has just started playing basketball... Come early to watch the Women's team. Your child will relate more to what they're seeing on the court as to what they're doing in their own club training and games.


Best chips are at...
Bendat Stadium, they're ridiculously good.


Best atmosphere...
Rockingham Flames home games are really fun celebrations and the crowd gets loud.
