Basketball camp in Rutherglen
More than 50 children and young people travelled from all over South Lanarkshire to take part in the Reach for the Sky Basketball 2016 Spring Basketball Camp at Stonelaw Community Sports Centre in Rutherglen.
It was a six- hour action packed fun filled day with many red smiling faces on April 9.
Special guest and former professional basketball player and Scottish internationalist Scott Russell was invited along to talk about his journey to become a professional.
The aim was to keep participants active over the holiday period, have fun, meet new friends and learn or reinforce basketball skills and techniques.
Russell said: “I loved speaking to the future basketball stars today about hard work, dedication and the importance of good nutrition in order to help achieve your goals.”
Reach for the Sky Basketball was set up by Graham Hunter, a former professional basketball player, to positively influence young people, both socially and economically, by providing opportunities and pathways through various basketball projects and programmes.
Each of the camps features competitions and awards and under 12s MVP Award went to Reggie Phillips from Glasgow and the over 12s MVP was Andrew Hamilton from Carluke.
