We will be conducting a fantastic holiday camp for both boys and girls of all age groups in June 2022.


Camp Dates : –Tuesday 4th of July through to Thursday 6th of July at De La Salle College. 


Times for each day for these camps are conducted between 9:00 am and 4:00 pm

We have have a 15-minute break midway through the morning and afternoon sessions of each day participants and we provide a supervised lunch break between 12:00 pm and 1:00 pm. Parents will need to provide snacks and lunches for their kids.


Participants will be able to be dropped off between 8:00 am and 9:00am. Child pick-up can happen between 4:00 pm and 5:00 pm.

What makes our camp different

Our camps are different and unique in a number of ways. These difference include
  • An hour is allocated at both the start and finish of the camp for the drop-off and pick-up of camp participants. Ideal for working parents or just parents who need to get their kids out of their hair for a day.
  • Online videos are produced and provided to cover what we teach our participants at camps so they can reinforce the skills they are introduced to.
  • Camp coaches are players and coaches with extensive experience at playing or coaching in high-level representative levels.
  • Camps are integrated with our after-school training to maximise the skills being taught to our participants.
  • Further opportunities are made available to camp participants, through teams in domestic and tournament competitions.
Camps are designed to cater for a number of skill areas over the three days ensuring every participant walks away with something that will benefit their game. 
More importantly camp participants will be able to follow up what they learn at camp  via our online videos once our camp has concluded.

Further Camp Information

Younger Kids

We do our best to group camp participants to match their ages and abilities as much as possible. This ensures the kids obtain as much enjoyment as possible from their time with us. Generally, for younger kids, the emphasis is as much on having some fun while being taught some new skills to use in their domestic games or programs.


In teaching these skills we do so as much as possible through drill formats with the kids in teams and engaging in competitive drills with plenty of encouragement and with more emphasis on attempting to use their newly taught skills as on winning. 

Older Kids

For our older groups, we teach them more through simulated match situations and scrimmage games. Drills are still used but with the mindset of using these drills to develop skills for games situations and then putting them into those game situations.


While still focusing on enjoyment and fun, older participants are normally looking for more challenging events with greater emphasis on competition and challenges with the skills being taught. 


Our Camps are designed for both boys and girls. Where numbers permit we organise girls which make things more enjoyable for the girls. We also design different skills challenges for the girl’s groups.


In the unusual event (especially in the older groups) that a girl or girls would prefer to join in with the boys, we would look at that situation where capabilities permit.


Of course, our camps are open for boys as well, as with the girls we look to form them into boys-only groups. This again is dependent on the number of enrolments we have.


These groups are sorted along both age and capability lines as well as keeping kids in their friendship groups. Most importantly, as best as possible we place participants in groups they are comfortable in with their current skill level and where they can achieve their most enjoyment from the participation in the camp.

For the more motivated

We also have groups for those players who are more motivated about serious training to improve their game. We can either form them into a separate group or embed them in a group and simply provide more challenging drills and skills for them to use and learn from.


They will receive condensed coaching and drills that will challenge them and help them improve their current skills considerably or learn new ones for future games and opportunities.

Our Coaches

Our Coaches are predominately players and coaches I have brought through and trained through my representative basketball programs. I also recruit coaches from Universities and schools who have either played or coached at a high level. All our coaches are trained in the drills and holiday programs that we used and are supervised through all our camps. Naturally, all of them will have to obtain and provide Working with Children Checks to be able to work with us where they are old enough to do.
