Dawgs bounce into camp
By Donica Phifer
Thirty-six girls lined up at 9 a.m. Monday for a little bit of basketball.
The athletes, ranging from age seven to 14, have signed up for a week-long camp at with New Albany girls basketball head coach John Stroud and assistant Anna Powell.
“We are really just working on the fundamentals of the game,” Stroud said during a break, “things that will help them be a good basketball player.”
Learning the correct form for dribbling the ball has been helpful for camper Victoria Brown.
Brown, who is an eighth grader and member of the New Albany Middle School basketball team, has been playing for two years.
“I came to camp because you meet new people and find new skills, you get to know people better….you get to have fun,” Brown said.
The camp is a week long venture, running from 9 a.m. to noon through Friday.
“It’s a good thing, even for my players….they get out here and teach things that I’ve taught them,” Stroud said.
Cost of the camp is $60 per participant, which includes a camp t-shirt.
