This summer, the Lakeland College women's basketball team is hosting two basketball camps for fourth-12th grade girls who want to improve their skills and have fun doing so.
The Lakeland College women's basketball staff strives to instill the skills, teamwork, dedication and positive attitude in their athletes which are necessary to becoming a better basketball player. The program's accomplishments prove that the staff has been successful in promoting such behaviors and they are offering this same instruction to youth basketball players.
A high school camp (grades 8-12) is set for July 20-22. It is designed to be an intense camp for young players who wish to prepare themselves for playing competitive high school and/or college basketball. This camp will emphasize all aspects of becoming a better offensive player. Focus will be put on how to develop proper shooting form, footwork, moving with and without the ball, and free throw shooting. Whether you are a post or a guard, our goal is to help improve your overall offensive game & maximize your skills at the offensive end of the court. Both individual and team play development will be improved by attending this camp. Many of the same drills and techniques used by Coach Vande and her staff at Lakeland will be taught. Cost is $180 for overnight campers, $125 for commuters.
A middle school camp (grades 4-7) is set for July 27-29. It is designed to cater to both the beginner and experienced basketball player. This camp will emphasize the development of correct fundamental skills, and an overall love for the game. Each camper will experience a learning environment that will challenge them and provide positive motivation to continue improving. Lowered hoops will be used for the lower grades to ensure proper form. Development on offense, defense and conditioning principles for all positions on the floor will be stressed. Cost is $165 for overnight campers, $110 for commuters.
For the overnight camp, four meals will be provided for the campers (breakfast, lunch and dinner on the first full day, breakfast on the last day). For the commuter camp, one meal will be provided (lunch on the first full day). Snacks are provided for both groups.
The camp staff is comprised of Lakeland's women's basketball coaches and players. With a one-coach-to-eight-camper ratio, the goal is to help each camper become a more successful basketball player.
