About Us


Grayson Hefford and Gavin Ruddock are very happy to be continuing High Five’s long tradition of providing high quality instruction to Durham students in a fun environment. Currently, Gavin is Vice Principal at Clara Hughes P.S. and previous to that was a long time Phys Ed teacher at Winchester P.S. where he coached a number of sports at both the junior and intermediate level. Grayson is Vice Principal at West Lynde P. S. in Whitby and previous to that was a teacher and then Vice Principal at Dr. Robert Thornton P.S. Throughout his years at Thornton, he coached many successful volleyball and basketball teams at both the junior and intermediate level.

We are Durham Region’s longest running and most successful sports day camp, operating out of Whitby and Oshawa schools during the first full 2 weeks of July as well as March Break. We stress the importance of Team Work, Sportsmanship and Spirit to complement the athlete at any level. We offer excellent coaching from Durham teachers/coaches. Individual attention will be offered to each athlete on the basic fundamentals, team strategy and advanced skills.

Competitively matched interleague play, tournaments and camp championships will be sure to test your competitive motivation. The latest in training techniques will be incorporated.

All camps are 26 hours of instruction and all campers receive a team shirt and personal evaluation. Awards and prizes are distributed on the Friday of the camp week. Locations for the camps will be confirmed when the Board of Education grants permits in late May.
