The basketball season may have ended, but not for the 4th annual Hoop Fever Basketball Camp. This program, for boys and girls ages 8-13, has been well accepted in all our neighboring communities as a great opportunity for learning and enjoying basketball during April School Vacation. This year's camp will begin Marathon Monday, April 21st, in the late afternoon to allow for watching or attending the event. From Tuesday the 22nd to Friday the 25th, the camp meets from 8:30 to 1:30. That includes a break for lunch except on Friday when we have our annual Pizza and Award Party.
The program is designed so that youngsters learn the game, play it in competitive situations and have a great time. Campers drill every day in the basics of the game; from dribbling to passing, from rebounding to defense, all designed to gain basketball concepts for better play and understanding the game. Games are 3x3 games, allowing all players to be part of every play. Everyone touches the ball and everyone experiences the fun of playing! The staff are all coaches from the college level to youth programs. They take their work seriously and try to make all players appreciate and develop a love for the game.
