Penticton basketball camps for kids are back in action this summer

Lake City Basketball is back getting back on the hard-court after a COVID-19 hiatus

Lake City Basketball is thrilled to be finally returning to the hard-court after a long break due to COVID-19 restrictions.

The pandemic temporarily halted all the existing basketball programs the local club could offer, but they did manage to pivot and offer a few COVID-friendly options throughout this past year.

But now, given the transition to Step 3 of B.C.’s Restart plan, indoor basketball programming, including summer camps, are back on track.

“This is fantastic news as athletes and parents have been contacting our organization for weeks inquiring about the prospect of summer basketball programming,” said Lake City Basketball organizer Dustin Hyde.

From July 12 to 15 Lake City Basketball will be offering three-hour basketball camps for two sections of youth.

The ‘Rookie Division’ is designed for youth going into grade 2-4 and will run from 9 a.m. to noon while the ‘Pro Division’ is for youth going into grades 5-7.

The camps are coached by Dustin Hyde, co-director and long-time community basketball coach and will be held at Holy Cross Elementary. The camps are structured and organized in a fashion focused on fun, fitness, and fundamentals through skills, drills, games, and competitions. The camp aims to help all athletes, regardless of skill level will benefit from the camp.

In August, Lake City Basketball will be offering another round of basketball camps at Unisus School in Summerland. The first set of camps will run from Aug. 16 to 19 and will be Rookies and Pros as described above.

The second set of camps will run from Aug. 23-26 and and will feature competitive camps for older youth.

The All Star Division is for athletes going into grades 7-9 and and the Legends Division is for athletes going into grades 10-12.
