This year we are changing the format of our camp to better target the needs of our club members.
From 10 am to 12:30 pm each day will see us hold a Junior Camp . This will give our coaching staff more time to introduce the fundamentals of the game to players in the 6 to 11 year age bracket. Previously all campers partook in the full day and it may have proved too much to take in for our younger campers. We feel this format will benefit them better.
The Senior Camp will start each day at 2pm and continue until 4:30pm. This part of the camp will concentrate more on the technical parts of the game, types of defence/offence, setting screens, rebounding etc. it will be more focussed towards player improvement. Participants in this camp will have played league basketball previously and should be ready for some hard work!
We look forward to seeing you all back after your summer break.
