Skills Clinic January 2020

JAN 2020 Skills Clinics a big success

VPS Basketball League would like to thank everyone who took part in the School Holiday Clinics at Rowville Secondary College and Chelsea Stadium in January.

The aim of the clinics was firstly for kids to have some fun with their friends during the holidays and to take their basketball to the next level.

The sessions were coached by Lucas Barker, a former Australian 3 on 3 and current Dandenong Rangers NBL1 Captain. The skill clinics catered for all skill levels of athletes from who had never played before all the way up to representative players. There was a combination of skill work and gameplay to develop the athletes dribbling, passing, shooting, defense and offensive skills.

The 2020 school term 1 competition will start soon but we intend to hold more of these clinics in the future.
