St. Lawrence Basketball Camps

We received this notice from Richelle Morris at St. Lawrence College today giving some details about their camps this summer. It’s that time of year!!!

The online registration for our 2015 Vikings Basketball Summer Camp is open!!! Go to the site to register.

Here are some things that will be part of the camp program:
The camp runs from 9am-4pm and is held in the SLC Gymnasium (located on campus off of Country Club Drive). We do have a Camp Head Coach will who run the events throughout the week, however we will also have some of our very own varsity basketball athletes who will coach the kids and work with them!

Some of the events that take place during the day and throughout the week are as follows:
-Skill Development session (dribbling, passing, shooting, defense, etc.)
-3 on 3 basketball games (they will be put into teams and will play games to compete against each other
-Fun camp competitions (Bump, Foul Shots, 2 Ball, Olympia, etc.)
-Guest speaker sessions (We have a couple guest speakers come in throughout the week to teach and focus on a basketball skill/fundamental with the kids)
- 5 on 5 games
*- There is also a lunch break every day. Everyone walks over to the SLC cafeteria together to eat lunch (some campers bring their lunch, and some bring money to buy a lunch… whichever you prefer).

Feel free to contact Richelle Morris at the college if you have any questions about camp. We hope to see your son/daughter on the court this Summer!!!

Letter From Canada Basketball

The Knights of Columbus Basketball League has been a pillar in the Canadian grassroots basketball community for decades. This prestigious program began 60 years ago and offers a great opportunity for children from Kingston to play basketball “Just for the Fun of It”. It is essential for our country to have programs like the Knights of Columbus Basketball League to teach children what the game can offer them, on and off the court. The Knights of Columbus Basketball League unifies the community and helps create lifelong friendships that go beyond the court. Participants obtain a healthy lifestyle through playing basketball and staying active which is crucial for their wellbeing. With the Knights of Columbus Basketball League effectively developing the game, it will surely continue to benefit Canada’s future in basketball.

Missing Boot

Below is a message posted here a couple of weeks ago from a Biddy Division parent. We are asking all of the other Biddy Division parents to please check their player’s boots to see if they are mismatched. Mrs. Funk will be bringing the boots to the banquet on Sunday in hopes of getting them reunited with their proper owners. Here is her original message:

“Good Evening, my son plays for the Grizzles, at tonight’s game at 7:30 someone took one of his size 9 kodiak snow boot and left one of their size 7 boot!! I will bring the size 7 boot to next weeks game!! Can u please send me a message if your son has this boot! Thanks
