WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Area youngsters interested in developing or honing their basketball skills can sign up for camps being hosted by Chris Popp and Reggie Freeman, head coach and assistant coach, respectively, of the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Basketball team.
The first is a skills camp for boys and girls entering first through sixth grade which is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon each day June 26 through June 28, and the second is a shooting camp for boys and girls entering first through 12th grade set for 9 a.m. to noon July 17 through July 19. Both camps will be held at the West Plains Civic Center, 110 St. Louis St.
The skills camp will involve fundamental work in many areas of the game, including ball handling, footwork, shooting and defense, Popp said. “We will also have fun with camp games and competition,” he added.
The shooting camp will be more deliberate, concentrated work on what it takes to be a great shooter, Popp explained.
The fee for each camp is $45 per person. Registrations can be submitted online.
