MacBros camp another success

Young Comox Valley basketball players display their talent at annual event

This year’s edition of the MacBros Basketball Camp was by far its most successful yet, organizers report.  From July 21-25 young basketball enthusiasts packed two Comox Valley gyms.

The morning camp featured a mob of excited, loud, entertaining and extremely fun 6-9 year olds at Aspen Park School.  The gym was buzzing with energy as all of the campers were focused on learning the fundamentals of basketball, teamwork, leadership and of course having fun.  Fantastic costumes were on display during our Whacky Hair, Crazy Sock and Canada Day themes.

In the 10-13 and 14-17 year old camps,  the campers proved the rebirth of basketball in the Comox Valley.  In the beautiful and wonderfully equipped CFB Comox gym the camp went without a hitch due to the huge support from all of the CFB Recreation staff.

All of the athletes wowed the coaches and parents with their unbelievable athleticism, skill and teamwork.  Coach Scott MacKinnon remarked, “The kids in the Comox Valley are truly one of a kind.  They are unbelievably respectful, polite and hardworking.  A true testament to this wonderful community!”

With another year finished, MacBros Basketball Camps are already excited for the ninth edition next summer.  Coach Ryan MacKinnon said, “This camp is the highlight of my summer.  It is such a privilege to coach such well-rounded kids. I can’t wait for 2015!”

“On behalf of MacBros Basketball Camps we would like to thank our sponsors for their dedicated support.  Without your generosity and involvement in this camp, it would not be successful.   Thank you Thrifty Foods, Happy’s Source for Sports, Titanium Crossfit, The Eagle 97.3, Coastal Community Credit Union, Quality Foods, Bodynetix, Insurance Centres Vancouver Island, Pay it Forward (Mark Isfeld Sr. Girls Basketball) and CFB Comox.  See you next year!”
