Graves launching new hoops school

Local basketball players looking for offseason training have no shortage of options in Chilliwack.

The head coach of Sardis secondary school’s 2013 and 2014 provincial tournament boys basketball team is running a club team this spring.

Kyle Graves helped send three of his Sardis players (Hayden Lejeune, Eric Roberts and Cam Servatius) on to post secondary programs.

The University of the Fraser Valley mens’ b-ball assistant coach will run this program for local boys and girls in Grades 9-11.

Graves will coach the boys with help from guest coaches like Adam Friesen (UFV mens’ head coach).

The girls will be guided by Graves and Sardis girls’ coach Gina Graves.

The program runs from the end of March to the end of June with two practices a week, two club tournaments plus friendly matches/scrimmages against other Fraser Valley clubs.

The cost will be $325, which includes a Basketball BC player membership and reversible jersey.
