All new basketball camp for young hotshots this Easter

10 March 2017

Young residents can bounce into action this Easter and hone their ball skills with a new basketball camp lined up by South Cambridgeshire District Council.

 

The basketball camp will offer participants the opportunity to work with a Basketball England qualified coach and develop skills in shooting, passing, dribbling, lay-ups and much more, with lots of opportunities to put them into practice in match play.

 

The camp will take place on Wednesday 5 April, from 10am to 3.30pm, at Swavesey Sports Centre.

 

The camp costs just £20 per child for the day. If two or more siblings attend, the cost is £18 per person per day.

 

The Council’s well established holiday camps are suitable for both boys and girls aged 7 to 15 years and are a great way to stay active whilst having fun, learning new skills and making friends.

 

South Cambridgeshire District Council’s cabinet member for sports, Cllr Mark Howell, said: “Our holiday camps are a fun way to keep our young residents active in the school holidays whilst driving home the importance of keeping fit and living a healthy lifestyle. We’re really pleased to be introducing basketball ball to the programme this year and hope it will help to capture the interest of even more people.
