Island Hoops Anguilla Basketball Academy Holds 1st Annual Basketball Drillz & Skillz Camp

Island Hoops Anguilla Basketball Academy (“IHABA”) is holding its “1st Annual Basketball Drillz & Skillz Camp.” The camp accommodates three age groups, 8-12, 13-16 and 17-19.

Starting August 29th to September 3rd, the camp runs every Saturday until October 15th and is held at the Adrian T. Hazell Primary School…

The IHABA is making upgrades to the court, including repainting it and adding bleachers. IHABA hopes to finish with 3 FIBA-regulation courts with center court seating for 800. Two training courts will be available for both Anguillians and visitors.

The IHABA’s stated mission is to provide the best quality basketball instruction, training and development, year-round to players of all ages and skill levels on the island of Anguilla. This grassroots program hopes to impact the youth using basketball as its platform.
