FOR children needing to burn off some energy and learn some new skills during the mid-year school holidays, Basketball Ballarat has an opportunity.

The Ballarat Junior Miners Holiday Camp will return in the first week of July at Selkirk Stadium.

Basketball Ballarat junior development co-ordinator Zack Cummins said children of all genders and abilities from age five to 14 are invited to get active and shoot some hoops.

“Improve your skills, develop techniques, enhance your game, meet new friends, and ultimately have fun,” he said.

“Our camps cater for the beginner who has never picked up a basketball to the most experienced 14-year-old in the land.”

Young people who take part will be able to gain instruction from professional coaches, develop new basketball skills and learn new ways to train and practice playing the game.

Basketball Ballarat’s aim is to provide an inclusive and structured learning environment at the camp, while also setting up more informal, fun playing opportunities.

Children learn from professional coaches and elite players at the camps.


Attendees can expect to learn about how to be a good teammate, how to support players around them, and they will get to meet and play with Ballarat Miners basketballers along the way.

The winter camp is set for July 1 and July 2, and July 10 and July 11 from 9am to 3pm. Registrations are now open.
