6 Reasons to Attend a Holiday Basketball Camp

Finding things to do over the school holidays can be a tough task. There’s almost an overload of options available, making it hard to make a choice. And many of the activities are fun for 15 minutes, then you get bored.

Attending a basketball camp is one activity that will not only keep you busy during the break, but keep you highly entertained too. Here are 6 reasons why a school holiday basketball camp is a great idea.

Social Development

Spending time at home playing video games might be fun for a while. But at the end of the day, we are social creatures and want to spend time with other people. Basketball camps give you the chance to make lasting friendships with people who share the same interests as you. It’s also a good chance to spend time with mates you may not have seen for a while.

Physical Fitness

As per above, it’s very easy to do minimal exercise when on holidays. Furthermore, it’s amazing how fast we can lose our fitness. Attending a basketball camp will keep your mind and body active, increasing the release of dopamine and serotonin, which makes you feel more positive. Staying fit will also help the transition back into the new school term will be easier.

Discipline

Basketball camps teach you how to abide by rules, but within a fun environment. This makes holiday camps the perfect setting to build discipline. Discipline can be very useful in sport, as it helps give you an edge over more talented players. It will help you become more dedicated and consistent. Learning to follow regulations is also a skill that is very useful in every aspect of your life.

Confidence

Trying out for a club team can be quite daunting. You need to perform at your best against a number of other players, in the hope of making the cut. By attending a holiday camp, you can learn how to build confidence and be comfortable competing against others, in a less stressful environment.

Develop your skills

Similar to building confidence, camps run a number of drills and activities to help you develop your skills. Learning from highly skilled coaches with years of experience will allow you to get the best out of your game. Practice makes perfect, and a camp will show you how to practice different techniques the “right” way.

Entertainment

Camps aren’t just about skills, fitness, discipline, and building your confidence. They are also entertaining. Perhaps the biggest reason to attend a basketball camp is because they are fun! We play basketball because we love the game, and camps are designed to be thoroughly enjoyable. When you attend a Tomorrow’s Stars Basketball camp, you are guaranteed to not only walk away a better and more knowledgeable player but enjoy the action-packed days we deliver for all players. If you’re struggling for activities to do during the school holidays, a basketball camp is a fantastic idea. Find out more info about our upcoming camps here.
