Female basketball players in Fort St. John will have the opportunity to train with a college coach.
Dave Waknuk, the head coach of the Grande Prairie Regional College Wolves Women’s Basketball team will be putting on a basketball camp this Saturday, Aug. 13.
The camp is scheduled to run from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. and will be taking place at the North Peace Secondary School.
Along with the Coach Waknuk, Caitlin Baker will also be helping to run the camp. Baker has been a member of the Grande Prairie basketball program for the past 3 years; she is originally from Fort St. John and even graduated from North Peace Secondary School.
During her years with the program, Caitlin has been part of the team that won the Alberta Provincial Championships and eventually advanced to the CCAA Canadian National Championship tournament.
She is also the recipient of the “Justine Tannis Award”, which is presented to a GPRC Wolves athlete that best represents a team player and student athlete. The award recipient is decided by fellow college athletes.
Coach Waknuk says Caitlin is an excellent role model for the girls in Fort St. John and he is really excited for her to have a chance to work with the athletes.
The camp is designed for girls of all skill levels between grades 7-12. The cost to participate is $50.00 and anyone interested in taking part is being asked show up by 9:45 a.m. to register.
