MACCABI JUNIOR BASKETBALL Kids sharpen their skills at winter camp

THE July school holidays started with plenty of basketball, as more than 100 Jewish kids sprung into action at a skills camp from July 4-6 at Moriah College, run by Maccabi NSW Basketball Club. The camp was a wonderful way to bring kids from across different schools, ages and abilities, together through their love of playing hoops. And the successful pathways program from Maccabi NSW All Abilities ensured that kids with special needs could join in all the fun and be part of the basketball club, which continues to grow and thrive, and is the reigning Maccabi NSW Club of the Year. The basketball camp will be back in the next school holidays, for more action-packed basketball skills and drills. It showed that basketball has taken a life of its own in the community, especially in the last few years under the leadership of the club’s president – former Sydney Kings star Brad Rosen – and it is becoming one of the fastest growing sport among Jewish youth. This year, the club is fielding a record number of junior boys and girls teams each school term in competitive leagues in both the City of Sydney Basketball Association and the Easts Basketball League.
