Bursaries for YAS Basketball Camp

Hall*Comm Bursaries will be available in order to help Saskatchewan youths (8 – 16) afford fees for sports camps to be held in Saskatoon and Regina during July and August, 2017.

Bursary applications may be submitted from March 1 until August 1

Hall*Comm Trust will co-fund youths from across Saskatchewan who wish to attend summer sports school or camp, but who cannot afford all the school or camp fees. Frequently, a partnership between charitable organizations will enable a youth to attend sports school or camp at significantly reduced fees and often FREE.

Hall*Comm Trust is very selective, and will only co-fund youths for attendance at camps or schools headed by certified professional “A” teachers who are also highly accomplished skills-development coaches. After extensive consideration, Hall*Comm Trust has chosen to partner with Canadian Tire Jump Start (CTJS) in order to co-fund youths to attend Young Athlete Saskatchewan Inc. (YAS) 2017 summer basketball camps.

More information and application forms: www.hall-comm.com
