Welcome to the Hamilton Academy
You can now enrol for Term 3 Shot Maker Academy training sessions! In Term 3 we will run 1 session per week on Wednesday mornings at Barkley Intermediate School.
We cater for beginners as well as advanced players and our programmes will help your child grow in confidence, gain self-discipline, make new friends and enjoy the game of basketball.
We utilise cutting edge training methods to help you become the best player you can be! Most players simply do not spend enough time on the fundamentals of the game. Whether your goal is to play college in the States, make your top school or representative team, we got you covered
Shot Maker Academy was operating successfully in Auckland and is now based in Hamilton. Our Head Coach, Alex Stojkovic, is the former Development Officer of North Harbour Basketball, he is a FIBA Certified Coach who was also the Head Coach of the Harbour Heat in the NZNBL as well as leading several age-group representative teams to National titles. He has a strong track record of helping players make New Zealand age-group teams.
Our sessions are designed to offer maximum repetition in an hour! Players are encouraged to bring their own ball to each session.

Dates for Wednesday Mornings:
3×3 Skills and Games
We have come up with this exciting new concept of using 3×3 to teach the game in a fun environment while still working on fundamentals at the same time. This programme will also run out of Barkley Intermediate School.
This is open for players who are in school years 5-8.
Basically players will come in and we divide them into teams. We will do a combined warm-up session and then we will play 3×3 on 4 baskets (basically using the width of the court) and we will have two games going on at the same time. These two games basically take up just over 2/3’s of the main court.
The other two teams who are not playing will learn skills at the other end of the court.
After 7 minutes we will rotate teams around – so everyone gets an even amount of skill trainings and games.
We think this will be a lot of fun for kids as everyone gets to play a lot, touch the ball a lot. The hoops are a little bit lower and the ball a little bit smaller. We want to make it fun and exciting for everyone involved!
We will train on the following dates:
16/23/30 (first day of school holidays)
Note – no trainings on 2/9 September due to Junior and Senior Secondary School Premierships
In total that is 7 sessions in Term 3.
The cost is $10 per session. $70 for the term.
