Basketball enthusiasts, boys and girls, from ages 9 to 18, are invited to improve their skill set

The ‘best basketball camp west of the mainland’ is back and celebrating its 40th birthday from July 4-July 7.

Anyone from Grades 4 to 12 who wants to improve their fundamentals and be on the ball for their upcoming season is welcome to a camp supervised by some of the best coaches in the province.

The camp will be divided into two age groups.

The first group, from Grades 4 to 7, will take place at Comox’s Aspen Park Elementary, from July 4-6. Grades 4 and 5 will be training from 8:30-11:30 a.m. and Grades 6 and 7 will be training from 12:30-3:30 p.m.

The head coach there will be Blake Tobacca, a former player at Vanier and at Vancouver Island University, the current head coach at Mark Isfeld Secondary, and an outstanding youth instructor.

The second group, from Grades 8 to 12, will take in the camp at Courtenay’s Mark Isfeld Secondary, from July 4-7. The camp will start at 9 a.m. and end at 1 p.m. each day.

The head coaches for the older campers will be Larry Street of G.P. Vanier, Martin Paul of Highland Secondary, as well as Tristan Carriere-Bela of Olds College and former Towhee.

Prizes, giveaways, incentives and awards will be handed out throughout the camp.
