Three of Sooke’s finest (basketball players, that is) attended Tenacious Basketball this past weekend. This basketball camp took place at Shawnigan Lake, from August 11 – 14.

According to Glenn Dickie, father to Sooke’s 6’8” player Scott, Tenacious Basket ball is a highly rated basketball camp, one that local Basketball Legend Steve Nash attended in his last summer of high school at St Michaels university school.

The players will be engaged in their favourite pastime for 12 to 14 hours a day, sometimes playing until midnight under the stars, or enjoying a swim in the river.

According to the Tenacious camp’s “Welcome” letter available on their communityearth.ca website, the objective of the weekday camp is to develop both skills: “We hope all our players leave camp with an understanding of what makes this team game great, after having enjoyed themselves thoroughly in our wilderness setting, The Sanctuary. To us, if you love learning and training for the game, the rest are details.”
