These extremely busy young men will be spending 10 hours of their time during the week of March 14 to 18 teaching elementary students the finer points of basketball “FUNdamentals.” The event marks the 24th annual camp and promises to be one of the best ever. There will be all sorts of skills, drills, contests and activities with many prizes and awards to be won. All students in Grades 3 to 7 are encouraged to sign up and bring some friends to join in as well!

After a long and eventful season where the youthful Vikings improved tremendously each time on the court, they are looking forward to a productive and equally busy off season. Spring basketball will be starting after the March break. This organization works with great flexibility to schedule around other sports the student athletes are already involved in.  The Vikes are also in the early planning  stages to participate in the prestigious Coal Bowl Classic in Nova Scotia next year which would be the sixth time our school and community has been involved in that cultural basketball event. The team is willing to work at a variety of events to raise funds for this opportunity so any individuals or organizations that have work the Vikings might help with can forward those requests to Nechako Valley Secondary School.
