“We got a 3-on-3 camp going on this week,” says instructor Phil Hiscock. “The main focus of the camp is to work on the kids’ checking skills – make sure they understand how to check properly.”
Participants rage from 5-18 years old.
“We had a little bit of a hiccup because the power went out here and there were some pretty sad kids because we had to cancel one of the groups for the day, but the kids love it and they actually picked-up the checking skills we’ve been working on,” Hiscock goes on to say. “I am really happy with the development I’ve seen.”
This is the seventh consecutive year Best Performance Sports Training has hosted the 3-on-3 camp in Fort St. John, and this year Hiscock says they had approximately 130 sign-ups.
“We run it every year during spring break, and it’s a camp that serves a purpose as far as working on skills we think are important, but it’s also kind of a fun way to end the season,” explains Hiscock.
The next time Best Performance Sports Training will be in Fort St. John is at the end of summer for their Power Skating Camp.
