WEST PLAINS, Mo. – Area youngsters interested in developing or honing their basketball skills can sign up for camps being hosted by the coaching staff of the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Basketball team, Chris Popp and Ken Moses.
The first is a shooting camp for boys and girls entering first through 12th grade set for 9 a.m. to noon each day June 25 through June 27.
The second is a skills camp for boys and girls entering first through sixth grade which is scheduled for 9 a.m. to noon each day July 16 through July 18.
Both camps will be at the West Plains Civic Center, 110 St. Louis St.
The shooting camp will be deliberate, concentrated work on what it takes to be a great shooter, said Popp, the Grizzly Basketball team’s head coach.
The skills camp will involve fundamental work in many areas of the game, including ball handling, footwork, shooting and defense, he added.
“We will also have fun with camp games and competition,” he said.
