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

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.
