General Information: In the Huskies Hoops Academy, players will get game competition each day; they will also have the opportunity to work on their skills during allotted instruction time.  Each session will last for 90 minutes.  In the first half of each session, players will work on shooting, ball handling, passing, footwork, defense, and other basketball specific training.  This instruction will be led by Huskies' coaches and varsity athletes.  During the 2nd half of each session, players will be divided into teams for a 5 on 5 game.  Teams will be mixed up each day so players will be given the opportunity to play with different people.  This format will allow kids to compete against each other during game action, but will also give them the opportunity to develop their basketball skills in a progressive teaching environment.

PLEASE NOTE:  There are no discounts off the Boy's Basketball Hoops Academy fee.

Camp Philosophy

Our mission at Saint Mary's University Jr. Huskies Camps is to teach people how to play basketball.  We provide, in a structured environment, instruction on the fundamentals of basketball with a focus on individual skill and team concepts.  We then try to provide, through games and contests, an opportunity for the campers to test their skills in a competitive environment.  We believe that success in all walks of life is attainable in some measure through dedication and hard work and try to instill this attitude in the campers.  At the same time, we believe that an "all work and no play" approach is inappropriate.  By grouping the campers according to age and ability, we try to provide a balanced mix of instruction, competition and fun that is right for everyone.

Skills Sessions

Solid fundamental skills are critical to success as a basketball player.  Consequently we spend two full hours each day dedicated to the teaching of the skiils of basketball in a structured, instructional environment.  The skills worked on include shooting, passing, ball handling, screening, offensive footwork, defense, rebounding and transition.  The rest of our schedule allows the campers to test their skills in various competitive situations.

‌‌‌‌Please note that you must send in both forms plus a post-dated cheque along with the deposit for the balance of the camp for your application to be considered complete.

We also offer a 2018 Jr. Huskies Camp Menu which is served at the Student Centre on Campus.  Hot Lunch is included with the Football Program and is an option ($50.00) with all other camps held at Saint Mary's.
