Mount Royal Cougars Basketball Camp


Message from Camp Director, Nate McKibbon

Our August evening training sessions have been developed to provide elite level athletes, or those looking for an elite experience, the opportunity to train like Mount Royal Cougar Women’s Basketball team member.  Our program focuses on teaching fundamental basketball skills and assisting athletes in understanding how, when and why to use those skills in game situations.  Athletes will be provided a competitive, high energy and fun environment to maximize player development during our intensive training program.  Come learn some of the same lessons that current NCAA, CIS and national team athletes have learned at the same age.
