Attention basketball enthusiasts who love the game and want to improve your fundamentals. Are you between the ages of nine and 18? Boy or girl?

Then the best basketball camp west of the Lower Mainland is coming again to the Comox Valley, and a good time will be had by all who attend. Prizes, giveaways, incentives and awards are all part of the 22nd annual Comox Valley Summer Basketball Camp.

The young boys and girls, Grades 4 to 7, will be at Lake Trail Middle School  from July 2  to 5, all together from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.  The head coach will be Blake Tobacca, a former player at Vanier Secondary and Vancouver Island University.

The head coaches for the older kids (Grades 8 to 12 next year)  will be Larry Street of G.P. Vanier and Don Herman of Maple Ridge Secondary. Street has 40 years of camp experience, as does Herman. Both coaches have taken numerous teams to provincial championships in their respective schools, and are outstanding at teaching the fundamentals of the game.

Both have coached provincial teams, and Herman has won a provincial championship with his high school girls at Maple Ridge.  Street has coached over 100 teams and has had over 50 former players play university or college basketball – more than any other high school coach in B.C. He is also a longtime NCCP course conductor who certifies coaches in various sports.

The older boys (Grades 8 to 12) will take in the camp at G.P. Vanier Secondary in Courtenay from July 2 to 5 in the morning;  the older girls will be in the afternoon camp at G.P. Vanier. Both groups go for four hours for four days.

“We will again try to keep up the long-standing tradition of producing skilled athletes with an emphasis on fundamentals,” Street said. “That tradition has been displayed by decades of great players from Courtenay, Cumberland and Comox, as well as outlying regions of the Comox Valley.”

Forms will be available at all local schools, G.P. Vanier’s main office, and local community centres. For more information e-mail Larry Street at larrystreetcar@gmail.com or  lstreet@sd71.bc.ca or phone 250-338-4943.
