Worth Staying In Sydney for a week for my kids to participate

25/04/2016 - Coming from a country town it was great for my son to mix with other kids that enjoy basketball. Basketball isn't big where we live and my son wants to further his skills and knowledge of basketball a game he loves. A great organised camp would send my son again and would look at other sports for my other children. Worth staying in Sydney for a week for them to participate.

Ratio of Trainers to Camper is Fantastic

17/04/2016 - Ratio of trainers to campers was fantastic and enabled each camper to have greater 1:1 time. What else can I say? Fraser had a fantastic time and was impressed that Ben remembered him from his previous camp. He enjoyed that there was a narrow age/experience range therefore allowing the whole group to progress together. The location was excellent - very easy to get to and good parking for drop off and pick up. Thumbs up to the sponsors - the shirts and drink bottles are excellent quality. Fraser is already looking forward to the next one.
