Sport Camps

Summertime is sports time with our Junior Griffins Sport Camps. Designed to challenge athletes of all skill and experience levels, our basketball, volleyball, and hockey camps provide the opportunity for young athletes to improve their individual sport skills in a positive team environment.

Camps are co-ed and designed to challenge athletes of all skill and experience levels. Led by MacEwan University athletes and coaches, young athletes are introduced to various forms of physical activity. Supervision is extended 30 minutes before and after each camp, except hockey, which is 45 minutes before the first session and 30 minutes after the final session. Athletes are supervised during the lunch hour but must bring their own lunch.

Note: Participants are expected to bring a bathing suit and towel for off-court activities. For the Basketball/Volleyball camps, each athlete will receive a camp t-shirt and a basketball or volleyball. In hockey camps, each athlete will receive a camp jersey.

Basketball Camps (Co-ed)

Led by current Griffins basketball coaches and players, the full-day basketball camps are designed to develop individual basketball skills and the fundamental movements required to excel at any level. Through technical practice, decision-training, and modified gameplay, participants will work on developing their footwork, ball control, scoring, defensive, and decision-making abilities.

Basketball & Volleyball Combo Camps (co-ed)

Brush up on your skills for the upcoming school seasons! The Junior Griffins volleyball & basketball combo camp will focus on fundamental skill development in both sports to improve hitting, serving, and setting skills and ball control, scoring, and decision-making on the court. Each day, technical training and modified gameplay will help build upon fundamental movement and volleyball/basketball-specific technique and game strategy.

Hockey Camps (Co-ed)

MacEwan Hockey camps offer a full-day experience for kids looking to have fun, improve their skills, and get active in the summer months. Our camps are consistent with the LTAD (Long Term Athlete Development) model to stay active and develop physical literacy. The focus will be on the Fundamentals and Learn to Train stage of development. Athletes will improve their fundamental movement patterns through sport-specific (on-ice) and non-sport-specific (off-ice) activities.

The camp includes two ice times per day of on-ice instruction from highly qualified coaches and players. These sessions will focus on various small area drills to help maximize individual instruction and, as a result, maximize skill development. In addition, to skill development, players will learn various game tactics through situational-specific games.

Participants are expected to bring all of their hockey equipment. They must bring a bathing suit, towel, shorts, t-shirt and indoor shoes for off-ice activities.

Volleyball Camps

Kill it this fall by improving your skills at the Junior Griffins half-day volleyball camps. Led by current Griffins athletes and coaches, participants will be introduced to fundamental movement techniques while developing hitting, serving, and setting skills in a fun and positive environment. Small group on-court instruction and gameplay will explore core concepts of offensive and defensive strategy.
