School may be out for area youths but the lessons continue as GHS Ridgerunner Head Coach Doug Winters and Lady Red Head Coach Richard Bassett initiated the ’09 edition of their respective basketball camps this week.
The Lady Red troops held court at the GMS gymnasium while the Ridgerunners nested at the GHS gymnasium.
Each camp was broken into two daily sessions: mornings for the younger kids with afternoons devoted to the junior high ranks.
Besides the head coaches, assistants with each program were also on hand to lend expertise, Margie Hayes and Kellie Roedenbeck with the Lady Red and Jeremy Collins and Jason Geer with the Ridgerunners.
Each camp also had a supply of current varsity players in attendance helping out.
Besides T-shirts and basketballs, handed out to all campers at the end of term, the kids had an opportunity to expand their mastery of the hard-court essentials and, most importantly, have fun.
