Local youth are being encouraged to slam dunk their fitness goals, make friends and have fun in a brand-new sporting program run by City of Canterbury Bankstown.

Launching on Tuesday 16 April, at Morris Iemma Indoor Sports Centre at Riverwood, the Eat, Train, Play! program will see those aged 12-24 years get involved in basketball sessions led by expert coaches.

Participants will be served up a healthy meal before taking part in skills and drills and jumping into competitive, but fun, games of basketball with new friends and teammates.

Canterbury-Bankstown Mayor Bilal El-Hayek said the program is not just about shooting hoops and slam dunking.

“It’s so important young people develop good habits around healthy and active lifestyles,” Mayor El-Hayek said.

“This new program is a fantastic opportunity for them to get active and learn new skills, while making new friends.

“I encourage all young people in our City to come along, challenge themselves and have some fun.”

The Eat, Train, Play! Program runs on:

  • Tuesday 16 and 13 April for those aged 18-24 years
  • Tuesday 9 and 16 July for those aged 12-17 years

A small fee of $10 per participant will cover the cost of entry and dinner. Registrations are essential.
