Coaches Ellen Riley and Kevin Heath are back, leading a basketball camp for boys and girls of all skill levels. The coaches are veterans of NBA coach Phil Jackson’s and CBA coach Charley Rosen’s Beyond Basketball camp at Omega. In an atmosphere of healthy competition, cooperative team play, fun, and love of the game, campers work on developing fundamental skills: ball handling, dribbling, passing, rebounding, offensive plays, spacing on the court, defense, and—everyone’s favorite—shooting! There are tournaments and prizes for all at the end of the week.
$10 materials fee; include when you register.
Bring water bottles and lots of dry socks.
