June 15, 2011

Motlow head coach Jerry Nichols announces a basketball camp open to area youth to be held in Copperweld Arena at Motlow's Moore County campus. The camp dates are June 23-25 with morning and afternoon sessions.

The morning session, for girls and boys ages 6-13, will focus on the fundamentals of basketball and individual skills from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Concentration on shooting technique, passing and ball handling will be key areas of learning as well as rebounding, defense concepts, footwork and agility.

The afternoon Elite camp is for high school students, 9th -12th grade, boys and girls. From 1 - 4 p.m. Coach Nichols and the Motlow Bucks will work with players on their individual positions, game concepts and shooting techniques; off-dribble, off screens and free throws. Conditioning and recruiting lectures will also be covered for the high school players.

Both age groups will participate in 3 on 3 and 5 on 5 games and other contests. The cost of the camp is $50 per player and all camp participants will receive a t-shirt. Space is limited so participants are encouraged to register early. Discounts are available for two or more players from the same family and team groups of eight or more.
