Mac Bros Basketball Camp returns to Comox Valley on July 13-17

Players of all skill levels welcome to popular summer hoops camp

The Mac Bros Basketball Camp returns to the Comox Valley July 13-17 for the ninth consecutive summer. Youth basketball players of any skill level are invited to come and enjoy the fun.

Coaches Scott and Ryan MacKinnon are ecstatic to be back for another week of basketball. “Ryan and I are excited to make it back to the Valley and to give back to a community that gave so much to us,” commented Scott, who this past year has balanced being a new parent, teaching and playing professionally in the Singapore Basketball League and the Thailand Super Basketball League.

Ryan, who has started his teaching career as athletic director at Brent International School in Manila since finishing his basketball career with the University of Victoria Vikes, mentioned, “This week is by far the biggest highlight of my summer. It is a humbling experience being able to work with such talented and terrific kids here in the Comox Valley.”

Current Mount Royal University Cougar and former Highland Raider Noah Lewis will be back after a terrific year in Alberta and coach Rusty MacKinnon returns to the Valley from teaching and coaching varsity basketball in China this past year. Both coaches will be bringing heaps of energy and new fun activities to the camp. Former Mark Isfeld player and first-year guard Danielle Van Bergen from the University of the Fraser Valley Cascades will be mentoring the ladies and helping develop future CIS snipers.

The camp will be held July 13-17 with the 6-9 year olds at Aspen Elementary from 9-11:30 a.m., 10-13 year olds from 12:30-3 p.m. and the 14-17 year olds from 3:30-6 p.m. both at Mark Isfeld Secondary.
