Written by Peter Davison on .

SlamdunkzSlamdunkzKids who want to aim high during the Easter holidays will have the chance to do just that at in Marlborough – at a basketball training camp.

The Wiltshire Council-run SlamDunkz camp is open to boys and girls aged between eight and 14, and will take place at St John's Academy from Wednesday to Friday, April 3 to 5.

Camps run from 10am to 3pm each day and cost £30 per child.

Each day will see skills and drills developed in the morning in age appropriate groups with activities provided to support passing, dribbling and shooting. In the afternoon, players will be assigned to teams and various matches will be played utilising the full length of the court.

SlamDunkz is part of a development plan to encourage the game in Wiltshire, set up and led by Wiltshire Council’s Sports Development Team and supported by local clubs.

Council sports development officer Alex Muse said: “This is a great opportunity for young people to get into the game, or develop existing skills, and hopefully will lead to more people involved in basketball in Wiltshire.”
