Bas­ket­ball To Host Elite Camp

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Sher­brooke, Len­noxville

TheBishop’s Gaiters men’s bas­ket­ball team and head coach Rod Gilpin will host their first ever Elite Gaiters Skills Academy for boys aged 13-17 from Aug. 18-20. The camp is set to take place in the new gym of the Bishop’s Univer­sity Sports Cen­tre from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. each of those nights.

The camp is be­ing of­fered with the aim of help­ing lo­cal high school aged bas­ket­ball play­ers de­velop and fine tune their skills. Gilpin and his coach­ing staff along with the help of a few Bishop’s play­ers will lead the campers through var­i­ous skills and teach them new con­cepts in­clud­ing more ad­vanced sys­tems used by the Gaiters. The in­for­ma­tion learned at this camp will help all play­ers im­prove whether they are try­ing to step-up a level in their school or pre­pare for the leap to the Cégep.

“We are try­ing to take the bas­ket­ball camps that are run in the summer one step fur­ther,” said Gilpin. “We will tar­get lo­cal high school aged boys who are look­ing to im­prove and get ready for their sea­sons. One of our goals is to in­crease the vis­i­bil­ity of bas­ket­ball in the area and hope­fully pro­duce great lo­cal tal­ent who can play at a high level.”

There is still room to reg­is­ter for the Elite Gaiters Skills Academy. To do so or to ob­tain more in­for­ma­tion con­tacts Coach Gilpin at rgilpin@ubish­ops.ca.
