BECOME A BALLER is a 5 stage program set out over 12 months to slowly increase your skills from Rookie Status to All-Star Status, then a further and exclusive MVP Invitational camp by Blaze head coach himself, Joey Wright. 


You will be coached by him direct in an invite only coaching clinic at the Convention Centre before a Gold Coast Blaze home game.

Stage 3 – Elite - December School Holidays (exact venue and dates TBA)
