    Todd Mac Hoops School Wraps Up with Year End Jamboree


    Over 150 participants of the Todd Mac Hoops School were at St. John's High School on Wednesday evening to wrap up the program with the he annual year end jamboree.  The event brought together all 8 Winnipeg inner-city schools to close off the 8 week program with a series of skill competitions and games.  Each fall, 8 inner city Winnipeg schools are selected to take part in the program. Each school is given a head coach that together with coaches from the school take the participants through 8 specific sessions. The program traditionally runs October through December out of the Winnipeg schools.  A similar program also runs April to June out of 5+ inner-city Winnipeg schools.  All participants receive a Basketball Manitoba shirt and basketball.  

    The program has been designed to teach basic basketball skills to inner city youth (ages 12-14) in a basketball camp environment. The program was initiated by Basketball Manitoba together with NBA player Todd MacCulloch. The program is completely funded by Todd MacCulloch and the Sport Manitoba Bi-Lateral Program and was written by Winnipeg native Garth McAlpine.
