Registration Begins for Citrus College Basketball Camps for Local Youth
by Stacy Armstrong

Want your kids to do something productive this summer? Enroll them in a Citrus College Basketball Camp!

Local youngsters, ages 6 to 14, can learn the fundamentals of one of America’s most popular sports by participating in one or more summer day camp sessions. This year, there are five session options: Session one takes place June 22 through 26, session two takes place June 29 through July 3, session three takes place July 6 through July 10, session four takes place July 13 through July 17, and session five takes place July 20 through July 24.

Each session will be held Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Early drop off at 8 a.m. and late pick up at 3 p.m. is available for no extra fee.

“Our teaching emphasis is bigger than basketball,” said Rick Croy, Citrus College’s head basketball coach. “Our energetic staff will give detailed attention to individuals in the areas of ball handling, passing, dribbling, footwork, defense, and rebounding. Campers will also learn the keys to shooting in a competitive enthusiastic environment.”

Croy, who led the Citrus College men’s basketball team to a California State Title and 35-1 record in 2008, says that the camp’s coaches and counselors were selected because of their knowledge and love for basketball.

“The staff will be made up of former and current college players who have a proven ability to effectively teach the game,” he said. “You will not find a group of coaches and counselors more dedicated and enthusiastic about improving your child’s basketball skills.”

The cost of each session is $150. Space is limited, so interested parties are encouraged to register as soon as possible. A $25 non-refundable deposit is required at time of registration, with the balance to be paid on the first day of camp.
