This week Brydens Sydney Uni Flames hosted a string of skills and shooting camps across New South Wales, aimed at upskilling junior basketballers.
We began at Brydens Stadium with a two-day intensive Skills Camp run by Flames Assistant Coach Reece Potter who was joined by Flames stars Joslyn Tinkle and Alex Wilson, among others. Some of Sydney’s finest young basketballers were given the opportunity to showcase their impressive skill set, working on their shooting, ball handling, defence and team skills.
On Wednesday the Flames made their way to Windsor in the north-western outskirts of Sydney, where Hawkesbury Basketball Stadium hosted a skills camp for budding basketballers aged 8-17. Tahlia Tupaea, Casey Samuels, Kate Seebohm and Carly Boag mentored a heap of talented kids, working on their basic skills and passing on some valuable pointers.
On Thursday, we ventured to Alexandria Basketball Stadium, home of the Sydney Comets, to run another skills camp. Crowd favourites Hayley Moffatt and Tahlia Tupaea led a great bunch of young players in a series of exercises and drills aimed at improving their game. A special shoutout to Thursday’s group who played through a stinking hot Sydney day where temperatures hit 41 degrees!
The Flames are passionate about running these camps as it gives kids the opportunity to develop their skills, work towards their potential and foster the growth of our wonderful sport and its future champions. Our Holiday Camp Program continues this Monday when we head to Thornleigh to run a camp at the Brickpit Sports Stadium.
