SCHOOL HOLIDAY CAMP
With Acceleration Australia
21st January saw our 10-16 year old members take on professional training with Acceleration Australia. This session began with individual sprint testing and then moved onto speed, agility and lateral quickness training, jump training and injury prevention. Recovery was conducted in the Clem Jones Pool afterwards. What an amazing session!!!
Many thanks to Acceleration Australia for supporting our club and its members. We look forward to offering more camps of this nature so stay tuned for more information during the next school holidays.
School Holiday Camp
with Abbie Jennings
Our other school holiday camp was with Abbie Jennings, QBL Lady Spartan. Abbie’s camp focused on getting back into shape for the basketball season after a long school holiday period. 2 hours of ball skills plus offensive and defensive skills – the kids had a amazing time. The session continued next door at the Terry Mackenroth Community Gym over at The Cave, where the kids were put through a fitness circuit focused on building core strength. Then final recovery in the Clem Jones 25m Pool where our players had an absolute blast with aqua aerobics!!
What a fun filled day for all involved!! Abbie has supported our club in many ways over the Summer Season. We have been so lucky to have her share her expertise with our members as well as coaching one of our girls teams. We will say goodbye to Abbie at the end of the summer season. Abbie is one of the most hardest working people I’ve ever met. She is a truly amazing human being and on behalf of Belmont Saints members and committee, I want to extend my deepest gratitude and appreciation for everything she has given to our players. Abbie, we wish you all the best wishes on your future endeavors – hopefully playing college basketball in the states by year end. We are behind you all the way!!!
