Girls Only clinic to bolster numbers
IN an effort to encourage girls into sport, the Ipswich Basketball Association (IBA) will be hosting a school holiday Girls Only "GO" Basketball Clinic next month.
The GO Clinic will provide an opportunity for new players to experience basketball in a fun, hassle-free environment whilst learning new skills and team concepts.
The clinic will run on December 15 and 16 at Cotton On Foundation Stadium at Booval. It will feature some of the region's leading coaches.
IBA development officer Greg Fox believes the GO Clinic will provide impetus to grow female participation numbers in the seven-12 year age group.
"Our association feels it's important to provide as many introductory training options for children as possible,'' Fox said.
"Continuing to build girls playing numbers will be a key area of development at IBA into the future.
"As our first ever girls only school holiday camp, we aim to put a great product on the floor so as to encourage interest in our 2016 competitions and programs.''
WNBL players from the SEQ Stars will also be on hand at the clinic to provide a Q&A session and autographs for participants.
The clinic will cater to beginners and club level players, with one or two day registrations on offer.
Registration for the GO Clinic can be accessed online at: ipforce.com.au
