Penticton basketball camp has openings

The 33rd Penticton Basketball camp has openings for the boys and girls sessions.

Gordon Herbert of Penticton will be instructing that camp for the second year in a row. The Frankfurt Skyliners coach will be assisted by UBC-O Heat players. Herbert is returning because he had a great experience last year and wants to support organizer Fred Fedorak. Herbert said he looks forward to building on last year's strong camp.

"Teaching fundamentals, but at the same time making it fun," said Herbert, in an email from Las Vegas, on what he looks forward to at the camp. "Giving the kids the knowledge on how to train by themselves, how to develop their skills. I want to make it an enjoyable, positive experience."

The girls section will be coached by Simon Fraser University Clan women's team coach Bruce Langford for the 14th straight year. Langford will be assisted by current Clan players.

The boys camp is from July 28-31, while the girls camp is from Aug.11-14, both at Pen High Secondary and Princess Margaret School from 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.

To register for the camp, call Fred Fedorak at 250-493-6387 or register online at http://www.members.shaw.ca/flfedorak/index.html. Rates for the camp are available on the website.
