AUGUST 18-23, 2019

If you're serious about basketball, you've come to the right place.

Over the past 26 years, nearly 5,000 players from across Canada and the United States have attended our action-packed week of basketball training.

Here's what you can expect from your experience with us...

Each morning you'll hone your skills through our unique skill development stations. You'll learn to read your defender, pass creatively, handle the ball against pressure, attack the basket with the right finishing move, and get your shot off against quicker players.

Each afternoon you'll have the chance to put these new skills into practice in your league games.  During breaks, you can enjoy swimming, canoeing, beach volleyball and the climbing wall.  Each evening we're back on the court for competitions and nightly all-star games.

To start and finish each day, through inspiring messages from Mano, you'll be challenged to fulfill your purpose in life. You'll be inspired to live your life passionately with strong character and by a standard of excellence through Christian-based principles.
