Over the summer school holidays we hosted two Swish Basketball camps (one at Belmont Oasis Leisure Centre and one at Morley Sports and Recreation Centre).
Between the two camps we had over 100 participants, which is a fantastic turnout! All the participants were split up into 5 groups depending on their ages, the youngest being 5 years old and the oldest was 13 years old. For 6 hours our coaches went through an array of different basketball drills and skills with their designated groups. They focused on passing, shooting, dribbling, defence and some game play situations. At the lunch break the kids got to test their individual basketball skills in a 1v1 game against the coaches. It was great to see all the kids smiling and cheering on their mates. To finish off the break, all of the coaches got to have some fun and show off their half court shooting. In the last hour each group started to play some 2v2s, 3v3s and even a few 5v5s. All coaches were impressed by the improvement of their players throughout the day.
We concluded both days with handing out certificates to each player, which told them what level they would be if they decided to join our weekly Swish Basketball program. All in all, both the camps were a great success and all our little swishers had a ball! We cannot wait to see them progress and have fun in our next camps!
