Regina Camp Update

We are excited to announce YAS has acquired the Laval School South Gym in Regina for our summer basketball camps.  You may recall that last summer the Laval South gym was not available due to a lengthy process involving the installation of a new roof.  For many years prior to last summer, our camps were held at this gym every summer even though we had many other choices of gyms.

We prefer Laval South for a number of reasons:

  • it provides excellent acoustics, which means players can hear and understand instructors and each other clearly wherever they are in the gym,
  • it’s air conditioned,
  • it’s kept very very clean including the gym proper, the entrance, and the washroom-locker rooms,
  • it is easy to drive too from any corner of the city and surrounding towns, even Moose Jaw which is only 45 minutes from Laval,
  • it has free and abundant parking right in front of the gym,
  • the Laval caretakers, teachers and administrators like us more than any other renters and fall over backwards to accommodate our every need, and
  • it lives and breathes rich French-Canadian character right from the first moment one sets foot in the building.

 

Although our camps are taught in English, the players who come to YAS at Laval get to experience much more. They will be right in the middle of the French Canadian culture – starting with the signs on doors.  For example “Gymnase” for gym, “cuisine” for kitchen, “Bibliothèque” for library, “vestiaire” for locker room, “Fontaine d’eau” for water fontaine, “jeu de basket” for basketball game, and “bruissement” for swish  .  .  .  just to mention a few super duper extras YAS camp youths will get because they attend YAS camp at Laval.

And to top it all off, the head instructor for this summer’s YAS Junior (8 – 10) and Bantam B (10 – 12) camps at Laval South is Phillippe Bossé, B.A., B.Ed..  Coach Bossé is a licenced Saskatchewan Professional “A” Teacher who came from Eastern Canada where basketball is truly king.  He is a certified coach with the Coaching Association of Canada (which awards the highest level coaching certification one can get in Canada).

Besides all the Junior (8 – 10) and Bantam B (10 – 12) camps at Laval, Coach Bossé will also co-instruct the Bantam A (12 – 14) and Senior (14 – 16) YAS high performance camps at Laval.

All this adds up to an excellent learning and skills development environment for the youths who come to YAS Summer Basketball camps in Regina.

Earn Your YAS Camp Fee

If you cannot afford the fee to attend YAS camp, you can earn it by helping to manage a YAS information display at a mall or supermarket in Saskatoon, Regina or even your own community around the province on weekends from May through July. In past years, dozens of youths had their fees earned in part or even entirely when they, their parents, their grandparents, and other extended family members, their friends did this. It’s a very interesting and easy in-kind activity that pays very well. Contact the YAS Director at info@yas.ca to request more information.

Hall*Comm Trust and Partners Proudly Support YAS

Hall*Comm Trust was established in 1996 by graduates of Dr. Martin LeBoldus High School, Campbell Collegiate, Luther College High School and Campion College in Regina as well as alumni of the Universities of Saskatchewan, Alberta, Regina, Victoria and Calgary.

Each year Hall*Comm Trust enters into partnerships with high-level entities in support of youths from across Saskatchewan who wish to attend summer sports schools and or camps, but who cannot afford all the schools’ or camps’ fees. In thousands of instances, such partnerships have enabled youths to attend summer sports schools or camps at reduced fees and occasionally free from any fee at all.

In 2018, Hall*Comm Trust has partnered with Saskatchewan Community Initiatives Fund, Canadian Tire Jump Start and the Saskatchewan Indian Gaming Authority in order to underwrite the fees for camps or schools headed by certified Professional “A” teachers who are accomplished basketball skills instructors. YAS – Young Athlete Saskatchewan Summer Basketball School is one of the programs Hall*Comm Trust has selected to support during 2018.
