Every July and August, youths of all levels of athletic ability and playing experience from across Saskatchewan and beyond attend YAS basketball camps in Regina and Saskatoon. To have a free YAS Information package mailed or emailed to you, email firstname.lastname@example.org and simply state ”send me YAS camps info.”
During a YAS camp, they quickly improve their basketball skills so that they can later excel on their school basketball teams. The YAS “Quick and Smart” basketball skills development methods are unique. They are derived from the basketball skills program developed by researchers and educators at the University of Victoria, home of the UVic Vikes, perennial Canadian University Basketball Finalists and Champions.
YAS uses the best available equipment. Basketballs are supplied by Wilson Sports: the same “NCAA Solution” and “Evolution” leather balls used in the American College Basketball “March Madness” and the Final Four Tournament.
Thousands of YAS graduates have played on high school and university teams across Canada. Last winter season, YAS graduates were on every Saskatchewan-based team that played in the prestigious Luther Invitational Tournament (LIT) in Regina and the Bedford Road Invitational Tournament (BRIT) in Saskatoon.
YAS graduates were on the rosters of 37 teams that played in the Saskatchewan Provincial High School Hoopla Basketball Championship Final Tournament held during March, 2019.
14,076 players from 276 different cities and towns have graduated from YAS summer camps since YAS was started in 1975. Players from 56 cities and towns graduated from YAS sessions during July and August 2018.
