Growing up in the North East of England, there definitely wasn't enough basketball around, so I'm always happy to hear of new opportunities cropping up, and encouraging kids to get involved.
Transition Sports is a new venture, founded by Simon Hall, who is the former Newcastle University coach, and Dirctor of Basketball at Camp Samoset in Boston, Massachusetts.
Transition Sports will be running a basketball camp for kids aged 13-16 on the 28th and 29th of May, at Whitley Bay High School, in North Tyneside.
It costs £15 per day, and spaces are still available for anyone who is interested in going along, and improving their basketball skills.
Each day will be split into fundamentals and agility based fitness training in the morning, followed by games and competitions in the afternoon.
Prizes will be awarded for the Camp MVP, Most Improved Player, the overall Winning Team and for Shooting Competitions.
Participants have to provide their own lunch, but refreshments will be available throughout the day.
