The Silver Knights Basketball Club is excited to offer our Annual Summer Camps during the first 3 weeks of August 2024, instructed by our Director of Silver Knights Camps: Coach Raoul Baumgartner.

Parents and Guardians, don’t miss out on this opportunity to bring your basketball “hoopsters” to St. Robert Catholic High School in Thornhill (on Leslie Street just south of Highway 7) the week of July 29 to August 2, 2024 to develop their basketball skills in a fun environment for our annual 5-Day All Day “Fun & Fundamentals” Summer Camp 2024 (players entering grade 4 to grade 9 this September, girls and boys).

We even have one week dedicated to a higher level of instruction with our 5-Day All DayElite High Profile” Summer Camp 2024 (August 12 to 16, 2024) at St. Robert Catholic High School only for players entering grade 7 to grade 11 this September, girls and boys!!!  We encourage both our Silver Knights rep players and our elite house league players to attend in order to hone their skills during the summer, and prepare for the upcoming 2024-2025 rep basketball season.  Rep team tryouts will take place over two weekends starting in September, the weekend after Labour Day.

Due to popular demand, this summer we have added a 4-Day Half-Day Shooting Camp (August 6 to 9, 2024) at St. Robert Catholic High School: Morning Session 9am to 11:45am (for grade 4 to grade 9, girls and boys) and Afternoon Session 12:45pm to 3:30pm (for grade 7 to grade 11, girls and boys).

Our camps have a fun-filled agenda/itinerary prepared daily.
