The Nile Swim Club debuted our summer basketball program in July2021. In keeping with our mission of providing a safe place for youth to develop relationships and leadership skills the NSC introduced our free 3 Day Basketball Clinic. The three sessions open to boys and girls between the ages of 5-18 years old, focused on the fundamentals of the game including dribbling, passing, shooting and defense stations. In addition to providing coaching in technical aspects of the game we incorporated mentoring “Camp Talk” sessions. The coaching, mentoring and instructor staff included professional, collegiate and local players.
The benefits of basketball are tremendous for the entire family. It's great for your heart health. Playing basketball requires agility, strength, and stamina. It helps to improve motor coordination, flexibility, and endurance. Basketball also encourages speed, agility, and strength. These skills are proven to have a positive effect on promoting a healthy body weight and encouraging more physical activity, which can enhance cardiorespiratory fitness and self-esteem. Our NSC basketball programming will provide an opportunity for youth at all levels to focus on the skills, drills, strength and conditioning of the game.
The Nile Swim Club will partner with YEAA (Yeadon Education Athletic Association) Summer Basketball League . YEAA will expand their games to utilize the new basketball court at the Nile. The Summer Basketball League operates from June-August. The parents, friends and families of the players will have an opportunity to visit the Nile on game days and receive membership opportunities and discounts on entry. The teams will be permitted to move through our back gate to the Yeadon Community Park basketball courts on game days.
