Skills camp set to run at Belmont secondary Dec. 19 through 23

Room still remains in Westshore Basketball’s fifth annual Winter Break Camp, running next Monday to Friday, Dec. 19 to 23 at Belmont secondary.

Participants will learn basketball skills through doing drills and playing scrimmages, with instruction from Westshore Basketball coaches and guest instructors from the University of Victoria. There’s also personal fitness training from Lisa Therrien at Strength in 2 Fitness and a special session with the Victoria Wheelchair Basketball Association.

Registration and fee information for the camp can be found online at westshorebasketball.com.

After the school winter break, Westshore Basketball will continue to run its Westshore Rain program. This nine-week session is designed for youth aged five to 10 as an initial or early basketball experience.

Skills and games happen at John Stubbs middle school in Colwood using adjusted hoops that are age-appropriate. Registration and other information for this program can also be found at westshorebasketball.com.
