Summer basketball camp returns

Then MacKinnon brothers look forward to another fun week

Mac Bros Basketball Camp is back for its 12th consecutive summer.

Youth basketball players of any skill level are invited to come out and join in on the fun. The camp provides a great opportunity for players to meet new friends, learn fundamental skills and participate in theme days at camp.

Coaches Scott and Ryan MacKinnon are excited to travel back to the Valley for another exciting week of basketball.

“We focus on creating a fun environment where all of our participants will have unique camp experience, learn the game of basketball and be active over their summer holiday. On our 12th year in the Valley, we are excited to get back this summer. We hope to continue to provide youth a great opportunity to learn the game of basketball,” said Scott, who is coaching the premier girls high school program at Singapore American School.

The camp runs from July 23-27, with the six- to nine-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. at Isfeld Secondary.

The camp will bring back several Comox Valley athletes competing at the highest university level in Canada. We take pride in involving local basketball athletes who have found success at the post-secondary level. We also look forward to welcoming back a number of Comox Valley high school basketball players as part of our coaching mentorship program.
