(Toronto, ON) April 5, 2017 – Canadian Youth Basketball League will host the All-Canadian Rising Stars Basketball Camp powered by Under Armour from August 9 to 13, 2017 at Nipissing University. The entertainment-filled, overnight camp is designed to support male and female student-athletes ages 9 to 16 in the areas of sportsmanship, character education and skill development.

Wayne Bridge, the designated Camp Director and Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at Ryerson University, has organized a fun and engaging program suitable to athletes of all skill levels. With over 30 hours of on-court instruction, plus extra-curricular activities like video game tournaments, Basketball Movie Night, and other surprises, this promises to be an exclusive experience for all ballers in attendance.

This is the first year that the camp is powered by Under Armour and all athletes will receive Under Armour apparel and footwear.

“Outfitting these talented young athletes in Under Armour from head-to-toe will help them feel like the pros when they step onto the court. And when you feel good, you play even better,” says Shana Ferguson, Director of Marketing, Under Armour Canada.

The CYBL’s efforts have also attracted the support of past and present professional athletes, including retired WNBA Champion and 2x WNBA All-Star, Tammy Sutton-Brown  (a product of Markham, Ontario). Sutton-Brown will be at the camp this summer.

“I’m excited to be joining CYBL for their Rising Stars camp as the Director of Girls Basketball,” said Sutton-Brown. “One of the main lessons I have taken away from my 12 years as a professional athlete is – when you master the fundamentals you always give yourself a chance at greatness. CYBL’s Rising Stars camp is a one of a kind opportunity for kids to develop the fundamentals, compete and take their game to another level.”
