I've had the opportunity to watch Jon grow and develop into one of Manitoba's best young coaches over the past 5+ years and I would highly recommend his camps to any athletes seeking improvement and an opportunity to learn new skills and concepts. Jon does an exceptional job of teaching every little detail about fundamental skills and basketball-specific concepts. One of the many highlights in his camp are the decision-making training drills and breakdowns which enhance athlete learning and understanding of higher level concepts. The skills and concepts taught are always age appropriate and individually catered to each athlete in attendance.

In the past few years Jon has shown that he is a well-rounded coach who is wise beyond his age with his skill development and basketball tactics. Whether you’re a high school or college player, attending a camp run by Jon Giesbrecht will certainly benefit your overall development!

Coach Giesbrecht is one of the top coaches and skill trainers in Manitoba. His skill work and ability to work with film is the best I have seen in a long time. Over the years, he has proven this by developing and working with some of the best players to come out of this province and winning three provincial championships along the way. His camps are excellent and every player goes away with a better understanding of what advanced skill development looks like.
Spiros Kavadas (Current John Taylor Collegiate Varsity Boys’ Head Coach, Former 15U & 17U Male Provincial Coach)
Having both coached with and against Jon I can attest to his knowledge of basketball. Basketball is Jon’s passion and he stays up to date on the best training and skill development techniques and drills. Players get better by working with Jon. If you are trying to become a better basketball player this off-season I would highly recommend working with Coach Giesbrecht.
