The sound of basketballs bouncing on the shiny floor at the gym at Three Lakes School in Middle Lake was evidence of young "b-ball" lovers enjoying playing the sport they love.
"We've got a lot of good basketball players out here, wanting to get better!"
Paul Humbert is a former Huskie player from the University of Saskatchewan, as is his daughter, Jill Humbert. Both were conducting two three-hour basketball camps on Sunday.
(Paul) Humbert says many youngsters with a passion for basketball came out to the clinic to hone their skills and to enjoy playing the game with others who share a similar interest.
"Why are there 30 players out here on a Sunday for three hours? Because they love playing basketball. It's a great thing to be doing instead of being at home. They want to go back to their own teams, and they want to be better individually and make their teams better."
Both father and daughter coaches have been running the camp for six years, and the love of the game is what keeps them coming back. Humbert says that he enjoys watching the young athletes develop their basketball skills from an early age (as young as Grade 3), and then onwards to a high school level and beyond.
'I'm all about getting better in sports and education, and I just love coming out here and doing this," he says.
Humbert says kids with a love of the game come from all over rural Saskatchewan to attend the clinic, and he hopes all of them will continue with the sport for many years to come.
"I hope all of them will go on to continue to play basketball. It's about enjoying the game and playing with the people you enjoy playing with. It's a life-long thing."
