HOLIDAY CAMP FAQ

 

1. How do I register my child for camp?

Contact us – contact@sidabasketball.com and we will assist you with the process 

2. What is the ratio of coaches to players?

The ratio of coaches to players is similar to that of a team context: typically 7-10 players maximum per coach.

3. What time I’m I expected to drop off and pick up my child/early pick up?

You may drop off your child no earlier than 15 minutes prior to start time and pick up no later than 3.00pm. A Late collection fee may apply. You are welcome to pick your child up early, however, this must be indicated on the sign in sheet and mentioned to the staff in charge during drop off.

4. Is my child expected to bring his/her own lunch?

Although SIDA Basketball provides small snacks to children throughout the day such as high energy fruits, your child is required to bring his/her own lunch and snack to camp, preferably nut free foods. It is also advised that your child brings his/her own drink bottle to camp.

5. Is my child expected to bring his/her own basketball to camp?

Yes, but if your child does not own a basketball he/she may utilise SIDA’s. 

6. What would my child do during playtime?

All children must be seated to eat their lunch for the first 10-15mins of playtime. At the end of 15mins, children may stand to play and socialise with their friends. SIDA provides a range of equipment during recess and lunch hours. We provide skipping ropes, soccer balls, football, tennis balls and tennis racquets, freebies and much more. Typically SIDA campers also have access to a playground. Children are supervised at all times. 

7. Will sunscreen be provided during outdoor camps?

Yes, SPF 50+ sunscreen will be provided. Our staff will aid with the application of sunscreen on each child. It is important that your child wears a hat during hot weather.

8. What if it starts to rain or becomes too hot during outdoor camps?

Children will manoeuvre into an undercover area to play small games or watch basketball movies such as space jam.

 

 

Testimonials

“My 2 children attended SIDA basketball for the 2 day holiday program. The program was comprehensive, with a focus on skill development, with lots of individual attention from the coaches. The personalised nature of the program enabled the children to get to know each other, and flourish in a safe supportive environment. This is a great program for kids at any level, to come together, learn skills and tactics, and help each other work to their personal best. The coaches were skilled, knowledgable, and encouraging, and emphasised the enjoyment of playing basketball.”

“Previously my boys had both had a miserable and unproductive time at other junior camp programs. It was just fantastic for them to have had a positive experience this year with SIDA!! It is great to see our youngest boy actually developing his basic skills (after a year of going nowhere!) and I’m thrilled about his positive attitude!”
