Eat, train, play basketball over holiday

LOCAL youth are being encouraged to slam dunk their fitness goals, make friends and have fun in a new sporting program run by City of Canterbury Bankstown.

Launching on April 16, at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre, the Eat, Train, Play! program will see those aged 12-24 years get involved in basketball sessions led by expert coaches.
Participants will be served up a healthy meal before taking part in skills and drills and jumping into competitive but fun games of basketball with new friends and teammates.
Canterbury Bankstown Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said the program was not just about shooting hoops and slam dunking.
“It’s so important young people develop good habits around healthy and active lifestyles,” he said.
“This new program is a fantastic opportunity for them to get active and learn new skills, while making new friends.
“I encourage all young people in our City to come along, challenge themselves and have some fun.”
The Eat, Train, Play! Program runs on Tuesdays, April 16 and 23 for those aged 18-24 years, and Tuesdays, July 9 and 16 for those aged 12-17 years
A small fee of $10 per participant will cover the cost of entry and dinner. Registrations essential.
