The Selkirk Saints Athletics program and Kootenay Basketball have teamed up to present a new basketball camp for boys and girls aged 11-18 year olds under the guidance of Director of Men’s Basketball at Gonzaga University, Jerry Krause.
Krause, who instructed last season during a camp at L.V. Rogers in Nelson, has been a professional basketball scout and general manager for such franchises as the Baltimore Bullets and the Chicago Bulls. He is also a two-time recipient of the NBA’s Executive of the Year award.
Highly regarded as a master of the fundamentals, Krause has authored 13 instructional coaching books on basketball and has been honoured for his efforts as a coach, educator and administrator.
The camp for boys and girls 11-14yrs of age will take place on October 22 from 5:30-8:30pm and a similar session will be held for boys and girls 15yrs of age and older on October 23 from 10:00am to 2:00pm.
