The annual River High School Basketball Camp is now in the books as another great opportunity for those attending. The 68 campers that took advantage received an education using drills in ball handling, passing, shooting and rebounding skills.
Offense and defense were taught by River Girls' Head Basketball Coach Rick Isaly and Assistant Coach Brian Williams with the assistance of the girls high school basketball squad as instructional guides.
The campers also enjoyed a number of contests designed to sharpen their basketball skills.
The campers were put into five different groups according to age and gender. In the morning, campers would do stretch and shoot drills for 15 minutes before the camp started getting into major motion.
Every day, campers shot foul shots, three-point shots and practiced hot spots, we well as many different skilled fundamental drills.
The day also included many different types of scrimmage games.
At the end of the week, the top students in each category and gender were awarded medals. In addition, Isaly presented a top Hustle Award and Top Camper award.
In conclusion, the campers gathered in the gym for an awards ceremony in which campers were presented ribbons and camp t-shirts for their outstanding achievements during the week.
