More than 300 young Northland basketballers got a chance to learn from one of the sport's best, Steven Adams, at a one-day camp in Whangarei. The Steven Adams Basketball Camp for 8- to 17-year-olds was held at ASB Stadium and was only one of three held in New Zealand this year.

The once-in-a-lifetime opportunity saw the young athletes spend time on the court with Adams working on their basketball skills, but most importantly, having loads of fun.
