The Comox Valley Athletic Association is holding its Spring 2015 Girls Vikes Camp this weekend at Mark R. Isfeld Secondary School.

UVic women’s basketball head coach Dani Sinclair and assistant coach Leanne Evans will be conducting the clinics, which are open to girls in Grades 8 to 12. The sessions go Friday, May 1 from 5-9 p.m. and Saturday, May 2 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

A contribution from Canadian Tire has reduced the cost of the camp to $50, and there are still a few spots available. Pre-registration is required by contacting John Lewis 250-337-0029, 250-218-2537, johnnymlewis@hotmail.com or Kerry Barth 250-218-2600, kerry.barth74@gmail.com

Organizers note this is an excellent opportunity for players to learn news skills and prepare for the upcoming club and regional basketball season.

Sinclair has been head coach of the Vikes women since 2012. She was 1998-99 CIS Rookie of the Year with the McMaster Marauders and three-time Ontario University Athletics all-star.

She is the head coach of Basketball B.C.s Vancouver Island Training Centre and head coach of B.C. Under 15 girls provincial team. In 2011, she was an assistant coach for Team Canada at the 21011 Pan American Games in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) level three coach graduated from UVic with a bachelor’s degree in education.

Evans competed for the UBC Thunderbirds from 2005-09, winning CIS national titles in 2006 and 2008. She was actively involved with the Canadian women’s national team program from 2004-11 and represented Canada at the junior, young women’s and senior women’s level.
