This is the fourth year the Steve Nash Basketball camp has been in Smithers

Nash basketball youth program gearing up

The Town of Smithers is offering the Steve Nash Youth Basketball program for ages 7-17, for the fourth year in a row.

The Town of Smithers will once again be offering the Steve Nash Youth Basketball program for ages 7-17 marking the fourth year for the popular program.

The program is on now and will run to May 5 at St. Joseph School, Walnut Park Elementary, BVCS and Smithers Secondary.

“In 2011, we had 110 players and given the popularity of this program, we expect to exceed those numbers this year,” said Mayor Taylor Bachrach. “We are thrilled that Basketball BC continues to support this initiative by bringing it to Smithers. It is an amazing opportunity not only for the youth players, but also the volunteer coaches and referees that get involved.”
