Q & A with Camp Champs Makayla and Hayden

10 Sept 2023

The countdown is on - 7 sleeps to go until Kingston camps begin! We had a chat with Camp Champs Makayla and Hayden with the aim of giving newcomers a true insight into KBA camps.

Makayla and Hayden attended KBA's 2023 winter camps and received their titles in recognition of the effort they put in at the camps.


Q. Favourite part of camp and why?

A. My favourite part of camp was when we did games in our drills or the 1v1s.

Q. Favourite coach and why?

A. All the coaches were amazing. I don't have a favourite, but Ray was always really encouraging, pushing us to do better in every drill.

Q. What would you tell other kids about our camps?

A. I would tell other kids that the camps are so fun. All the coaches are nice and encouraging and the other kids at the camp are competitive when it comes to the 1v1s and 1v2s.
