Calling all basketball players to Bomber Camp

 

Basketball in Nelson has been a popular as candy over the years in the Heritage City.

Young basketball enthusiasts can improve those skills at the 2017 Bomber Basketball Camp set for July 10-13 at the L.V. Rogers gymnasium.

The summer camp runs beginning Monday, July 10 at the LVR Hangar from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

The camp is open to girls and boys from Grades 4 to 9 — with younger kids from Grades 4-6 ending at noon and the older players continuing through the afternoon.

For the cost of $125 before the July 1, 2017 deadline or $150 after July 1, campers receive instruction on basketball fundamentals, including shooting, passing and ball handling skills.

There will be 1-on-1, 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 competitions through the week and prizes throughout the day.

L.V. Rogers Junior Boy’s coaches Bruce Fuhr and Fred Brown are hosting the camp, with additional support from graduating Junior Bomber players. Fuhr has coached and officiated the sport of basketball extensively in the Kootenays while Brown coached high school varsity teams in Ontario.

Former LVR Bomber grad Sarah Fuhr is also part of the camper coaching staff.
