Make no mistake, basketball runs through the blood of the Pangos family, which is why there is no off season. Coming off a succeessful freshman campaign that saw Gonzaga’s Kevin Pangos explode on the NCAA national radar, the star point guard is back to the drawing board, training to further elevate his game, while also teaching the next generation.
The Pangos family will be running a two-week camp (August 13-17 & 20-24) at Dr. Denison Secondary in Newmarket, lead by Camp Director Kayla Pangos of the York Lions.
