Basketball Camp Basketball Summer Camp

Markham Basketball - Sport Specialty Camp

True North Basketball Sport Specialty Camp is a recreational day camp for girls and boys of all skill levels, ages 7 to 14 years old. Operating Monday to Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Raybeck Park, we provide a safe and encouraging environment in which young athletes can learn, practice, and compete. 

Each morning, campers will participate in a variety of camp-wide sport activities including flag football, ball hockey, soccer and baseball. During the afternoons, campers will focus on the fundamentals of dribbling, passing, shooting, and rebounding. By rotating positions during drills and scrimmages, players will have a chance to play guard, forward, and centre. In addition, several team concepts will be introduced including team defence (man-to-man vs. zone), setting screens, cutting without the ball and of course, the pick and roll. Come test your skills at horse, bump and our end of week 3-on-3 tournament!
