Lassen High School hosting youth basketball camp
June 6 — Lassen High School will be holding a youth basketball camp called Camp Grizz between 12 and 5 p.m. Monday, June 17 through Thursday, June 20 for boys and girls ages 8 to 15.
Campers will be placed with a trained camp counselor on teams of no more than 10 players. Counselors will provide constant supervision and act as a positive role model to all campers.
According to the camp’s brochure, “(The camp and its directors) believe sports are a valuable part of life, in which many life skills can be taught and reinforced in a fun and meaningful way. Our first priority is to provide a positive experience in which campers are taught teamwork, conflict resolution skills and individual responsibility. We promote physical activity and encourage a healthy lifestyle through participation in sports. We provide in-depth instruction in the fundamentals of basketball. Camps will provide opportunities to improve and to compete at higher levels.”
Campers should bring appropriate athletic attire, comfortable, non-marking basketball shoes, a water bottle, snack and basketball.
The camp will be broken up into two age groups: 8-11 and 12-15. The older group will be at Lassen Community College, while the younger group will be at Lassen High School’s big gym.
Player drop-off begins 30 minutes before the start of camp.
Players are encouraged to sign-up early, but may sign-up the day of camp.
