Summer Jam calling for campers

There are a few spots left for the Summer Jam Basketball Camp, presented by Okanagan Elite Athlete.

The third annual Summer Jam Basketball Camp, presented by Okanagan Elite Athlete, is filling up quickly.

Kelowna Secondary School is re-doing its floor this summer so Okanagan Elite Athlete has moved the camps to KLO Middle School.

The program is attracting campers from the Okanagan and beyond. The camp is for all skill level and genders.

“We currently have registrants from the Okanagan and Lower Mainland,” said Mitch Goodwin, a former Pleasant Valley Saints’ star.

“We’re excited to offer fundamental skill development, team play strategies, and an increased passion for sports and basketball to all the campers.”

The coaching staff for Summer Jam 2013 is impressive. Some of Kelowna’s best high school players will be joining together to coach youngsters from across the province.

Goodwin was one of the leading scorers in Canada as a rookie in CIS as a member of the UBC Okanagan Heat men’s basketball team.

Landry Ndayitwayeko, co-captain of the Heat, is a defensive specialist.

Carly Corrado and Aspen Percival, both Kelowna Owl grads, will be working with the girl camps. Corrado recently committed to play for the UNBC Timberwolves in Prince George – one of the newest universities to join Canada West.

Interested campers are encouraged to register soon as registration is filling up. Visit www.okanaganathlete.com.
