We are Young Athlete Saskatchewan Inc. (YAS), a long-running summer basketball camps program for kids and teens held every July and August in Regina and Saskatoon.
The YAS Summer Basketball Camps program was co-founded in 1975 as an international women’s year project for girls only in Regina. In 1976 YAS became co-ed. The co-founders were executives, coaches, teachers and other professionals from the Regina Church Basketball Association (RCBA) and the Regina High Schools Athletic Association. During its first 8 years (1975 until 1982), YAS summer camps were a sub-program of the RCBA.
In 1983 YAS was incorporated with the Saskatchewan Government as an independent non-profit charity and also expanded to Saskatoon.
Since its founding, YAS summer basketball camps have graduated 14,938 youths from 278 mainly Saskatchewan communities, but also from 8 provinces and countries as far away as China, Taiwan, Australia, Mexico, England, France, India, the United States, Germany, Italy and numerous African countries.
Over the past two summers, YAS Summer Basketball Camps were 100 percent compliant with Saskatchewan Health Authority (SHA) COVID19 regulations. COVID had no negative effect at all on YAS and its program quality. Kids and teens from across the province and beyond signed up, developed basketball skills, played, had tons of fun and made new friends at those YAS camps. There was not a single instance of anyone catching COVID.
YAS is headed by professional “A” licensed teachers who are highly accomplished and championship basketball coaches and skills instructors for youths of all levels of athletic ability and playing experience from novice to developing to advanced.
