MISSISSAUGA, ON, May 11, 2023 /CNW/ - Experience an NBA-style event and workshop on teamwork, diversity, and community engagement at Nav Bhatia's Fantasy Basketball Camp.

The Superfan Nav Bhatia Fantasy Basketball Camp coming to Malton, Victoria and Vancouver!

The Superfan Nav Bhatia Fantasy Basketball Camp is now heading to the west coast thanks to sponsorship from Interac and from We The West who are renowned for bringing Canada Basketball and The Toronto Raptors to Victoria.

The program aims to help campers sharpen their basketball skills, engage in meaningful discussions about teamwork, diversity, and the importance of embracing their community. No prior basketball experience is required.

"Interac helps give Canadians control over their money so they can get more out of life, and one way we can do that is by helping youth gain lifelong confidence and skills," said Will Keliehor, Chief Commercial Officer, Interac. "Basketball is a wonderful way to teach youth lessons of resilience, agility and control, and it brings a lot of joy to communities across Canada. We're pleased to support this program in Ontario and British Columbia."

The first stop will be in Victoria on June 3rd and 4th inside the Save On Foods Memorial Centre, followed by Vancouver on July 4th, 5th and 6th inside the Langley Events Centre, with the final stop back in Malton on August 1st, 2nd, and 3rd at the Superfan Courts in Malton.

"We are thrilled to welcome Nav back to Victoria this June, and Vancouver in July. The Superfan Nav Bhatia Basketball camp is a great opportunity to help give our next generation of young players a chance to be their best" said Nick Blasko COO, FOVB / We The West. 

Malton holds a special place in Nav Bhatia's heart, as it is where he first started his journey in Canada. As he put it, "I was so happy after the camp in Malton. I wanted to give back to the city that gave me the opportunity here in Canada. Kids and their parents enjoyed an experience like they have never been a part of before. Not only am I bringing back the camp to Malton, but I am taking it to Victoria and Vancouver this summer, which I am very excited about!"

In the summer of 2022, The Superfan Nav Bhatia Foundation proudly organized the inaugural Superfan Nav Bhatia Fantasy Basketball Camp in Malton, providing an unforgettable four-day experience for all campers. The foundation spared no effort in delivering a top-notch NBA-style event that left campers in awe. Each participant received a full basketball uniform, breakfast, lunch, snacks, a backpack filled with gifts, and their very own custom basketball card. Parents expressed their appreciation and joy at seeing their children enjoying VIP treatment like never before.

Returning Gold sponsor, Tangerine Bank, continues their ongoing commitment to empowering youth in their communities through Tangerine Project Forward™.

"Basketball is so much more than a game to us, and we are proud to support Canadian programs that provide such amazing opportunities for young athletes, said Nicole German, Chief Marketing and Digital Officer at Tangerine Bank. "Uniting and empowering youth on and off the court can help turn athletic dreams into realities, and we hope to see some of these campers on even bigger stages in years to come."

Tim Hortons and Hyundai Canada are joined this year by GSL Group as Silver partners of the Nav Bhatia Superfan Fantasy Basketball Camps.

"We are so thrilled to welcome this year's campers to Save on Foods Memorial Centre this summer," explains Mike Strawn, VP of Sports, Media & Entertainment at GSL Group. "Victoria is such a sports-centric community, and we welcome any opportunity to foster the development of young sports fans by making the game they love more accessible."
