Citrus College Announces Dates of Annual Youth Basketball Camps

by Stacy Armstrong

 

It is never too early to make plans for the summer!  Enroll your children 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 an exciting day camp session hosted by Citrus College’s championship basketball program..  Keep your kids active with these five-day sessions, each taking place Monday through Thursday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Friday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

 

Session I will be held place June 21 through June 25, session II will be held place June 28 through July 2, session III will be held place July 5 through July 9, session IV will be held July 12 through July 16, and session V will be held July 19 through July 23.

 

“Each camper will receive detailed attention in the areas of ball handling, passing, dribbling, footwork, defense, and rebounding.  They will learn the keys to shooting in a competitive and enthusiastic environment,” said Rick Croy, Citrus College’s head basketball coach.  “Our teaching is bigger than basketball – we also provide participants with valuable life skills.”

 

A typical daily camp schedule will also include 5-on-5 full court games, swimming, and 3-on-3 tournaments.

 

According to Croy, the participating boys and girls will be taught by experienced coaches and counselors who have been selected because they possess knowledge, love of the game and have a proven ability to effectively teach its intricacies.

 

“The staff is made up of former and current college players,” he said.  “Parents will not find a staff more dedicated and enthusiastic about improving their children’s basketball skills.”

 

The cost of each session is $175 per child and all camp sessions take place in the Citrus College Gymnasium.  Space is limited, so interested parties are encouraged to register as soon as possible.  A $25 non-refundable deposit is required at the time of registration, with the balance to be paid on the first day of camp.
