Nothin' but net for Yorktown youngsters
By Allison Flores
In only its’ third year, the Yorktown Summer Basketball Camp has at least tripled in size. This year, the camp (that was from Monday-Thursday), had four different sessions throughout the day; 1st-4th grade girls were from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m., 5th -8th grade girls from 10 a.m. until noon.
The 1st-4th grade boys started from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m., with the 5th-8th grade boys training from 3:30 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. Each day included ball-handling, shooting, passing, footwork, defense, rebounding, and most importantly, teamwork.
About 75 kids attended the camp this year to better their basketball skills. Yorktown High School Coaches Jeremy Bailey and Val Acree ran the camp, with help from YISD students and even graduates.
“It’s fun, the kids are fun,” said Acree, “we’re trying to get them interested in the sport.”
He continued, “more importantly to Coach Bailey and I both, is building relationships with these kids.”
