The 26th Annual B&K
Basketball Camp staff will again include high school coaches from all over the area, successful college and high school athletes, as well as a certified athletic trainer on June 11-15 at Paten City High School. The camp will meet 8 a.m.-noon each day.
In addition to a fast-paced week of basketball instruction, each camper will receive a camp T-shirt, daily refreshments, participation certificates, an evaluation sheet, as well as awards that will include medals, daily ribbons, and daily "Hustle Awards."
The camp will feature fundamental drills, concentrating on ball handling, passing, shooting, and rebounding. It also will stress team offense and defense and include video tape instruction. There will be foul-shooting contests, three-point shooting contests, and one-on-one competitions.
Athletic evaluation will include standing broad jump, vertical leap, jump rope, shuttle run, and lateral movement.
Again this year, the camp will meet in one-day sessions to help alleviate some of the problems experienced in the past, such as campers needing to leave camp early during the afternoon session.
The Pee Wee group (K-2) will continue to meet in the air conditioned multi-purpose building, while third through eighth graders will meet in the gym.
Camp competitions will continue to be by grade-level/gender and team play, divided into grades 3-4, 5-6, and 7-8. The camp welcomes any boys or girls who will be in grades K-8 during the 2011-12 school year.
The camp director, Paten City Head Boys' Basketball Coach Fred King, asks that campers pre-register, if possible. However, registration also will be held on the first day of camp.
The cost of the camp is $50 a camper. A $5 discount will be extended to any additional family campers. Please make checks payable to B&K Basketball Camp and mail to: Fred King, 303 North 4th. Ave., Paten City, WV 26159; or to Jeff Bowers at 309 North 1st. Ave. Paten City, WV 26159.
