Due to the current COVID-19 restrictions in Manitoba and the extension announced on May 27th, the Providence Athletics Department has made the difficult decision to cancel all sports camps this summer. Here's their statement, "We are disappointed with this outcome, but we continue to support the government of Manitoba in their efforts to protect Manitobans. We look forward to welcoming campers back in 2022!"
OTTERBURNE, MB - The Providence Athletics department is running day camps during the month of July in basketball, volleyball, and soccer for students in grades 7 to 12. Registration for Summer Sports Camps opened on May 3rd.
This year, due to continuing COVID-19 issues and restrictions, we cannot offer overnight camps, but have decided instead to run day camps beginning on July 5 and running until July 31. Each camp takes place over a three-day period on our Otterburne campus, starting at 9 am and ending at 4:30pm.
Coach Joel Coursey, our Sports Camp Coordinator, explains, “We’re very excited to be able to bring Providence’s Sports Camps back this Summer! We are dedicated to following the regulations and guidelines provided by each of the Provincial Sport Organization's ‘Return to Play’ protocols. We anticipate that it’ll be a great experience for everybody.”
Prov Sports Camps are an excellent opportunity for junior and senior high students to improve their skills. Athletes are provided with four to five hours on the court or on the field every day. The camps are designed for all skill levels, providing athletes a chance to work with a highly skilled team of coaches including our own professional university coaches.
The day camps cost $210 (plus GST). Participants will need to bring a bag lunch, water bottle, proper sports shoes/protective gear, extra gym clothes/socks, and a face mask.
