The Fleming Knights Men’s Basketball team have had a very positive summer offering programs and giving back to the community . The Knights offered a high school program from July through to August, every Thursday, which focused on elite training, skill development and team concepts. “We have already received a lot of positive feedback from parents and participants about the success and benefits of the program, so it’s definitely something we are going to continue to do,” Coach Wilson said. The Fleming men’s players coached various drills and refereed the games, which gave them an opportunity to build relationships within the basketball community in Peterborough. “It was a terrific opportunity for my guys to develop their leadership skills and also mentor the younger generations of basketball players we have in our city. Overall I’m pleased with the energy and effort they brought each week,” Coach Wilson added. They concluded the last Thursday session with awards and a congratulatory speech from the Basketball staff.
The Knights will continue to run various programs for kids throughout the fall and winter.
