Sporting Pathways Scotland CIC launched their second community development basketball club at Garnock Community Campus recently.

The Garnock Valley Giants Community Development Club is open to boys and girls from five-17.

Sporting Pathways Scotland CIC was founded and is directed by former professional basketball player CEO Graham Hunter.

He said: “This club is an ideal place for children and young people to become engaged in a very positive, uplifting inclusive basketball community club.

“I have coached some incredible children at the local schools this month, I was very impressed at their level of play and their positive attitudes, I hope to see many of them attend the club.

“Whether you just want to have some fun, hang out with friends or make new friends or become Scotland’s next big star, this is an ideal starting place. Everyone is welcome.

“It’s great to be working so close in partnership with the Active Schools team again after the success we had in Kilwinning, they have been excellent helping set up this new club in the Garnock Valley.”

Active Schools Coordinator, Ewan Jamieson, added: “The Garnock Valley are incredibly lucky to have this fantastic opportunity.

“Graham has a wealth of experience and fantastic enthusiasm. The kids loved his sessions and came out buzzing with excitement.

“It is unusual to get someone who has the knowledge, skill and willingness to take pupils from as young as 4 to as old as 18 and the club is very reasonably priced.

“The club aims to be here for a long time so if children start young they will have the chance to build up their skills and have a lifelong interest.”
