“Endurance and Focus…only the fittest of the fit will survive”

In addition to our drop-in program, this year we offered a low-cost summer “Basketball Boot Camp” at St. Martin de Porres Catholic School for youth ages 10-13. The camp was a training program designed to increase the children’s mental and physical toughness. Activities were designed to build stamina, endurance, strength and perseverance – taking talented young ballers to the next level by providing:

– fundamental basketball drills & training
– fitness and nutrition lessons and
– personal coaching and mentoring

Parents were able to choose from 5 weeks of camp in order to accommodate their schedules and budgets and all of the equipment was generously donated by Sport Chek (Forzani Group Inc.) through their “Power of Sports” giving program.

Camp ran 5 days a week from 9am – 3pm under the supervision of 2 nba staff and a secondary school student placement worker from Blessed Mother Theresa Secondary School in Malvern.
