| News

The UPEI Athletic Department has teamed up with Basketball PEI in a new partnership between the University and the community to present a series of summer camps for male and female basketball players from Grades 4 to 12. They have joined forces with Basketball 101 Development Schools to provide four basketball camps, beginning in mid-August.

The staff line-up for Basketball 101 Development Schools looks like a "Who's Who?" of PEI basketball. The program director is George Morrison, director of development for Basketball PEI. The resident coaches will be Mike Connolly, head coach of UPEI men's basketball, and Reagh Vidito, head coach of UPEI women's basketball. Members of the UPEI Panthers will also be on staff at each camp session. The camp director is Scott Morrison, head coach of Lakehead University's men's basketball. Prominent high school and provincial team coaches will round out the camp staff.

Promoted as "the #1 teaching school in the East," the camps are being offered August 15 to19 at Kensington Regional High School for boys and girls in Grades 4-8; and at the UPEI Young Sports Centre, August 22-26 for girls in Grades 4 to 9 and August 29 to September 2 for boys in Grades 4 to 9. An evening camp for boys and girls in Grades 10 to 12 will be held at UPEI August 29 to September 2. Day camps will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm daily. The evening camp will run 6:00 to 9:00 pm.
