Toowoomba Grammar School

TGS “All-In” Basketball Camp 21-23 June 2019

Toowoomba Grammar School “All-In” Basketball Camp

The 2019 Toowoomba Grammar School Basketball Camp will be held during the final week of Term 2, from Friday, 21 to Sunday, 23 June 2019. The goal for the camp is to expose our athletes to some of the finest coaches and players Toowoomba has to offer, provide an opportunity for the boys to develop their Basketball skills and to begin establishing the TGS Basketball ‘Style of Play’. This, along with our previous basketball commitments for 2019, will assist in squad formation for the A Squad Camp and training squads for Week 1, Term 3.

While not compulsory, all players are strongly encouraged to attend the Camp so that they may maximise their skill acquisition and development ahead of future team selection. Our primary focus for this camp is to develop our Basketball cohort into more proficient and confident players so that they may best contest the upcoming GPS season. Our boys are fortunate enough to be presented with this unique opportunity to be guided not only by TGS A Squad Coaches but also by professional players with collegiate and international experience.


Pre-Season Calendar of Events:

TGS Basketball All-In Camp                    Friday, 21 – Sunday, 23 June

TGS ‘A’ Team Camp                                 Saturday, 13 – Monday, 15 July

GPS Basketball Season Launch              Thursday, 18 July

GPS Basketball vs GT (Round 1)             Saturday, 20 July


The GPS Basketball trials and All-In Camp will also provide players with an secondary opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of TGS Basketball coaching staff in an effort to impress for ‘A’ team selection. Once ‘A’ teams have been selected, they will be given another invitation letter to attend the ‘A’ team camp.

Should Boarders wish to attend, they will be required to arrange their own accommodation off campus, with the School recommending they stay with a dayboy peer. Should you find difficulty in achieving this, please contact Mr Kabe Cicolini (k.cicolini@twgs.qld.edu.au)

Camp times will be the same across the three days and are as follows, with all players to meet at the Glen McCracken Sports Centre Entrance:

Camp Times: Squads
7:00am – 10:00am Year 7 and Year 8 Squads
10:30am – 1:30pm Year 9 and Year 10 Squads
2:00pm – 5:00pm Year 11 and Year 12 Squads

 

*** Boys are to bring their own snacks for their time at the camp. The Basketball Supporters’ Group will run a complimentary BBQ each day.

There will be no upfront cost for the camp; however, if boys require a replacement or a new TGS Basketball Program Shirt at a cost of $20 (to be placed on account). A design of this will be available to view during the camp with shirts to arrive shortly thereafter. It is highly encouraged that boys purchase a TGS Basketball Program Shirt to wear on game days.

If you have any questions, please contact Director of Basketball Mr Kabe Cicolini.
