Middle school students from HMS Richards Adventist School, Vista Ridge Academy, and Brighton Adventist Academy came to the Campion Academy gym this past Friday to experience a three-hour basketball clinic led by Campion Varsity players.
The clinic began with students focusing on improving their skills. The drills involved dribbling, shooting, and passing. Abby Cleveland, one of the students who participated in the camp, commented, “My favorite part of the camp was doing the drills. We had to do a passing drill where we practiced our bounce and chest passes. I felt like I had improved more on my passing.”
After the drills, they competed in a mini-tournament. There were around 45 students in total and they were separated into four different teams. They had to use teamwork with new people in order to be a successful team. Grace Garman, senior and team coach, stated that, “I had fun during the camp. I got to coach my team and help the players get better. It was competitive but I had a lot of fun!”
The camp was a great opportunity for students to improve their basketball skills and get to know students from other Adventist schools.
