Impact Hoops is hosting summer basketball camps at Mennonite Educational Institute next month.

Camps for boys and girls entering grades 4-7 run July 1-4 and July 14-17, while sessions for those entering grade 8-11 run July 7-10 and July 21-14. Sessions will be focused on fundamental skills such as ball-handling, passing, shooting and defence, with older athletes progressing to more intermediate/advanced skills to attack off the dribble, finish at the basket, and shoot under pressure more effectively.
