Our school holiday program was developed by Sports and Exercise Scientists from the University of Technology Sydney, to ensure we are providing the best possible program for children.
Two words that describe our basketball camps - FUN & STRUCTURED
As a parent, there is nothing more disappointing, then taking your child to a holiday camp that is unstructured and all over the place. Your child will become bored quickly and you don't receive value for what you paid for. Our Little Boomers Basketball camps will cover a range of basketball skills including dribbling, shooting, passing and more. We split children into age groups to ensure the skills and activities are suitable for their ability. Each camp is organised efficiently to ensure that you are receiving value for what you paid for and that your child is learning and involved throughout the entire duration of the camp. Leave it to the EXPERTS to keep your child active during the break!
HOW WILL THIS BENEFIT MY CHILD?
Camps are divided into age groups to ensure children are training and competing with other children of the same or similar age.
The skills we have designed are adaptable to all children making them easy to learn, fun but also challenging at the same time
Our coaches are passionate for working with children and you will notice this on the court!
Our basketball games will give your child the opportunity to develop their team skills and interact on the court
Safe and secure: All classes are held indoors and all coaches have valid working with children checks and qualifications
It's vital at that age (5-12) that children have a positive experience with team sports so they can become a better team player in the years to come.

I’m so glad I found out about Little Boomers Basketball! I initially booked my son in for one day of school holiday camp and he loved it so much I booked him in for the following day and a program throughout term 1. All the coaches were very welcoming and fantastic with all kids - tailored fun and educational activities for all age groups. Highly recommend.
