Fury have produced more than 50 Scotland and Great Britain players - with help from these camps - and will deliver these three in July and August.

Fury Headcoach John Bunyan told Heraldsport – ‘These camps are one of the main reasons our players over the years have gone on to be successful. Camps were you receive pretty intense instruction are one of the best development tools there is. They are hard but fun and having quality coaches from the US and here in the UK taking part are what sets them apart from other basketball activity, I would encourage anyone who is interested in the sport to get involved.”

CAMP One at Larbert High is a development camp open to nine-13 year olds and will each day have player and team development delivered by Fury’s International players and coaches coupled with competition throughout the week with awards and a Fury camp T shirt.

The cost is £35 for the five days and Fury - a member of the successful Tryst Community Sports Club - will also look to encourage more players to join their weekly development sessions at Larbert throughout the season.
