Basketball July Holiday Programme
Total Basketball Oamaru is excited to bring back our July holiday programme, after a very successful programme in 2021. The programme will run in the July school holidays. Coaching Sessions will be held at the St Kevin's College gymnasium ( Wednesday 20 July to Friday 22 July) and the Waimate Events Centre (Monday 11 July).

This programme has been designed to enable young players (Years 7 - 9) in the Waitaki & Waimate district to access high quality and specialised coaching without having to travel out of the area.

Former St Kevin's College, Wellington Saint and current USA University Basketball player Matt Brien is the Head Coach.

There is a special "Girls Only" session available for those girls that would like to attend this session.

Please complete the following form to register for the July holiday basketball training programme.  The focus will be on specialist and up to date basketball training, working on developing ball handling, dribbling, and passing skills in a fun and supportive environment.

Space is limited and you will need to register. You can choose which of the sessions (two hour sessions) that you would like to attend at $25 per session. Payment needs to be made before attendance at the session(s) please.

St Kevin's Open Day and Evening
Presentation and tours begin at 1.30 pm and 6.00 pm on Wednesday 3rd August.
