Christmas Camp Recap

basketball training vancouver

Amid the sudden snowfall that came down on the city of Vancouver and the rest of the Lower Mainland the day before, upon entering the Union Facility gymnasium, one could feel a definite buzz of energy within the atmosphere. Perhaps it was the anticipation build up each athlete waiting on the sidelines, with basketballs in hand, had for this year's Christmas Camp.

Before you realized it, the bouncing of multiple basketballs simultaneously filled the gym, with random shots going up on any basket that was available. Once the camp t-shirts were dispersed to each participant and a light warm up led by coach Nico was completed, loosening up those young, vibrant bodies, coach Joel took command from there. Leading by example as he so often does for each drill, making it look so easy, coach Joel pounded the ball, making his presence known, as he described instructions in a voice of confidence and followed up with every camper in an effort to make any adjustments necessary.

For the next few days, drills of various moves mixed in with different aspects of how they're incorporated into the game would be shown to camp participants. And every time a new drill began, athletes listened attentively before focusing their energy on replicating what they had just viewed. A great work ethic was displayed by all campers, who made sure to enjoy themselves by having fun learning new moves and tricks of the game, they weren't aware of before.

To cap off a productive 3 days of work and enjoyment (unfortunately the 2nd day snowed us out but didn't dampen spirits in the least the following session), coach Yao showed everyone how it's done by throwing down a windmill dunk! We look forward to doing it all over again next Christmas Camp and we hope you'll be able to join us!
