Mac Bros summer basketball camp returns

Lots of fun and top-notch instruction at July 21-25 sessions

Comox Valley youth basketball players will have the opportunity to dribble, drive and shoot their way to hoop dreams with the return of the Mac Bros Basketball Camp.

Mac Bros Basketball coaches Ryan and Scott Mackinnon are extremely excited to come back and spend this fun-filled week (July 21-25) in the Valley. “Ryan and I cannot wait to get back to the Valley and put on another great camp this summer.” commented Scott, who has spent the past year teaching and coaching basketball in Singapore at the Fast Break Academy.

Ryan, who has spent the past year finishing his education degree in the Valley, added, “Basketball is thriving here in the Comox Valley, with so many dedicated coaches, excited and passionate new players, I cannot wait to get into the gym and coach these young athletes.”

This is the eighth year the camp has run in the Valley. This camp is a non-profit  event that includes camp scholarships for kids in financial need and includes nearly 130 Comox Valley children,

The camps are designed for a fun, crazy and unique experience that teaches discipline, importance of teamwork and to have a blast.  For example, there are theme days, prizes, camp jerseys, camp videos, contests and lots of other surprises, as well as basketball skill development.

The dynamic duo of coaches Rusty MacKinnon and Cyril (Croc) Indome are both returning from teaching and winning various exhibition tournaments in Shanghai, China.  Also, the budding star of the Mount Royal University men’s team coach Smiley (Noah Lewis) will be back for another summer.

MacBros Basketball camp takes pride in providing each camper with a fun, exciting, interesting and engaging opportunity to learn the game.  The camp welcomes participants who are looking to continue to hone their skills or just to try basketball for the first time.

The camp will see the 6-9 year olds going from 9 to 11:30 a.m. at Aspen Elementary, 10-13 year olds from 12:30 to 3 p.m. and the 14-17 year olds from 3:30 to 6 p.m., both at CFB Comox Gymnasium.
