During the October break, we were excited to host the LANNA Basketball Camp in collaboration with Hoop Club Thailand for the first time! Hoop Club Thailand is a Bangkok-based organisation that has been set up with the vision to grow the game of Basketball in Thailand, to see players enjoy the game from 5-18 years old, and to provide a pathway for high performance achievement.
34 LANNA students attended the camp, and were given the opportunity to develop their fundamental basketball skills and knowledge under the guidance of experienced and highly qualified coaches. Our junior students learned the basic fundamentals of shooting, ball handling, passing, and defense; senior students worked on the same areas but in more detail with a strong focus on being adept with both hands. Both groups learned the importance of dedication and having an improvement mindset.
Over the course of the camp it was clear to see how much our students enjoyed the experience, and how much they improved their skills!
A huge thank you to Coach Pete and Hoop Club Thailand – we hope this is the beginning of many camps hosted together, and look forward to inviting you back to our international school in Chiang Mai soon!
