Discount deadline extended for Grizzly summer camps

Wednesday, June 11, 2008

The early sign-up discount for the Grizzly Basketball Summer Camps, hosted by the Missouri State University-West Plains Grizzly Basketball program, has been extended through June 13, head coach Brian Ostermann said.

Area youngsters can sign up through that date and still receive the $15 discount in camp fees, he said.

The camps begin June 16-19 with the Elementary Basketball Skills Camp for boys and girls in kindergarten through sixth grades.

This popular camp, which will be held from 2:30 to 5 p.m. each day, will concentrate on the basic basketball fundamentals.

Primary emphasis will be placed on passing, shooting, dribbling and footwork.

Participants will compete in several contests, and awards will be given.

Participants also will receive a free T-shirt.

Ostermann also pointed out that West Plains Elementary School summer school students will be able to ride Bus No. 37 to camp after school, if they wish.

The Grizzly "2 In 1" Specialty Basketball Camp will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. June 23-26 for boys and girls in grades five through 12.

This camp will focus on shooting fundamentals in the morning and competitions and games in the afternoon and evening.

All aspects of shooting will be taught, including footwork, balance, release of shot, hand placement on ball, follow-through, shots off the dribble, and shots off the pass.

Several shooting competitions and contests will be part of the camp, Ostermann said. Prizes and/or awards will be given to winners in most competitions, he added.

Lunch and dinner is included in the camp, and participants will receive a free T-shirt or Grizzly basketball.

Cost of the Elementary Basketball Skills Camp is $65; cost of the Grizzly "2 In 1" Specialty Basketball Camp is $195 for commuters and $245 for those who wish to stay in a room at the Grizzly House residence hall on the Missouri State-West Plains campus.
