Hawks Team Up With WY Basketball For Youth Basketball Camps

In an clear display of community partnership and shared vision, WY Basketball have clinched a significant grant from the West Yorkshire Combined Authority’s ‘Mayor’s Safer Communities Fund’. This landmark achievement will see the launch of a dynamic series of basketball training camps tailored for 9 to 11-year-olds, hosted at the University of Huddersfield, the home court of the newly-formed West Yorkshire Hawks.


The West Yorkshire Hawks, emerging as a symbol of the power of basketball in the region, are excited to join forces with WY Basketball in bringing this transformative initiative to life. This collaboration underscores their commitment to nurturing young talent and fostering a safer, more connected community through the power of basketball.


The Mayor’s Safer Communities Fund grant serves as a testament to the shared vision of West Yorkshire Hawks and WY Basketball. Together, they aim to provide a platform for local youth to develop not only their basketball skills but also essential life skills, such as teamwork, discipline, and resilience.


“We are overjoyed by the Mayor’s Safer Communities Fund’s endorsement of our joint mission,” declared Mark Mills, Co-founder of the West Yorkshire Hawks. “This grant will empower us to create a positive, nurturing environment for the youth in our community, while also nurturing their passion for the game of basketball.”


The training camps will feature experienced coaches alongside some of Hawks players, who will impart their knowledge and mentorship to aspiring athletes. The camps will be more than just a sporting experience; they will provide youngsters with the tools they need to excel in various aspects of life.


The University of Huddersfield’s state-of-the-art facilities will provide an inspiring backdrop for the training camps, offering participants access to premium courts, cutting-edge training equipment, and an environment conducive to learning and growth.


The West Yorkshire Hawks and WY Basketball are currently finalising the camp schedule and anticipate welcoming young athletes to the first camp session in October. Stay tuned for further updates, including registration details and additional program highlights.
