Girls Basketball Camp
We are thrilled to be offering a Girls Basketball Camp in 2020!
Girls Basketball Camp in Lawrence Park is a recreational day camp for girls of all skill levels, ages 8 to 14 years old. Operating Week 4, Monday to Friday, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at John Ross Robertson, the program is designed to 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!
Most importantly, our amazing coaches foster the memorable summer camp experience and confidence-building environment that makes True North Sports Camps unique. This summer, come find out what makes our basketball camp so special!
While our girls-only basketball camp is offered for one week in July, our basketball camps that are offered throughout the rest of the summer are co-ed. We would love to have your daughters join us!
