The Legion Athletic Camps will once again be offering a full slate of summer basketball camps at the International Peace Gardens in July and August.  This camp annually attracts hundreds of athletes from Manitoba, Ontario and Saskatchewan, as well as others from as far away as Nunavut, England, Mexico and the United States. Whether you are an up and coming player or looking for a place to explore new interests, the Legion Athletic Camp has a place for you and your friends. Best of all the camp is located on the grounds of the beautiful International Peace Gardens on the Manitoba-North Dakota border.

Along with the main university size indoor court, the Legion Athletic Camp features three full outdoor basketball courts and a total of 14 outdoor hoops. This camp is designed for athletes ages 12-17, who are normally grouped according to age and skill level. Exceptions are made for younger exceptional/dedicated athletes.

Consist of stretching and ball-handling, followed by rotations through fundamental, small group and team stations. Each station builds sequentially on previous rotations. Athletes will develop all of their basketball fundamentals: shooting, passing, dribbling, rebounding and defence. Athletes will also learn proper screening, cutting, spacing, reading defences and offensive moves.

These include various types of basketball competitions and movies and social events with other camps. The week ends with a 4 on 4 tournament and camp awards. Some of the best teaching coaches around can help you to understand this sport and reach the next level as a player.

The Legion Athletic Camp is also a great place to learn the game as an individual, group of friends or as a team.
