This week, 50 young basketball players will meet in Montgomery for the 2014 Little Stars Basketball Camp at the WVU Tech Baisi Athletic Center. Open to boys and girls ages 6-15, the camp runs from Monday, June 23 until Friday, June 27.
The camp offers basic individual improvement drills and features 3-on-3 play and 5-on-5 play in addition to 3-point and free-throw competitions for prizes. Attendees will focus on fundamentals such as shooting, dribbling and passing, defense and on-court attitude. Each camper will receive a basketball, Little Stars t-shirt, trophy, player photo and evaluation.
“We’re looking forward to the Little Stars Basketball Camp this summer. We enjoy working with youngsters to improve their knowledge and skills, and we promote a positive attitude that helps young players become winners on and off the court,” said camp director and WVU Tech men’s basketball head coach, Bob Williams.
Williams has coached the WVU Tech men’s basketball team for 12 seasons where he led the Golden Bears in a 2012 Mid-South Conference Championship season, posted back-to-back 20-win seasons from 2011 – 2013, and was named Mid-South Conference “Coach of the Year” in 2009. At camp, Coach Williams will be joined by assistant men’s basketball coach David Rawlinson (All-American ‘13), WVU Tech men’s basketball players and area coaches.
Camp days will run from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., Monday through Thursday and 9 a.m. until 12 p.m. on Friday.
