Elite girls basketball camp comes to Comox Valley in new year

Basketball players in Grades 8-12, and keen players in Grade 6 and 7, are encouraged to attend an elite girls clinic in the new year. The Comox Valley Athletic Association hosts the clinic for a second straight year, Jan. 4 and 5 at Isfeld Secondary.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn new skills and sharpen your game heading into the second half of the school season. Sessions will focus on improving fundamentals and building decision-making skills in a competitive environment. Coaches will introduce athletes to Canada Basketball’s terms of reference, drills and systems to help them become familiar with Canada’s style of play.

Sessions will be led by high performance coach Leanne Evans, a former national team player who has coached with Basketball BC’s high performance programming, and at the University of Victoria.

Aieisha Luyken and Jenna Krug, both impact players at the USPORTS level, will serve as lead assistant coaches. Since graduating from university, both have been involved with community coaching and with Basketball BC.

Cost for the clinic is $75. The Jan. 4 session is 1-4 p.m. and Jan. 5 is 9 a.m.-1 p.m.
