Nanaimo youths can keep the ball bouncing over the holiday break.

Brar Basketball hosts a pair of camps this month, with one for elementary school students on Dec. 21 and one for high school students on Dec. 28.

The camps are led by Avneet Brar, assistant coach with the Vancouver Island University Mariners men’s team, and will be held at the VIU gym.

The first camp is for boys and girls in Grades 1-7 and will be held from 4-7 p.m. at a cost of $40. The second camp runs 10 a.m.-4 p.m. at a cost of $80, and includes dinner.

According to Brar’s website, the elementary camp “will get the athletes moving, learning new skills and having a great time,” while at the secondary camp, “athletes will be provided with lots of new drills to improve their game.”
