Day 6 11/10/13
Well, we are in our next to last week of camp and you have to see the strides the players have made. The players had some difficulties along the way, but always gave it their best effort. Watch the video below to see our 4th graders 2-ball piston dribbling, while walking the width of the court. This just goes to show that practicing each week can make perfect. Each of the players has learned to dribble with two basketballs and as a result has become a better ball handler.

We had another great week at Rising Stars Camp. As you can see, the players have improved tremendously from the first day of camp. It is incredible wathcing the 4th graders dribble with 2 basketball and learn to shoot with their off hand. It is equally as impressive watching the older players attempt drills we do at the high school level. Not only are they trying the drills, but in many cases they are able to learn the necessary skills to complete the drill.
We are excited about our final week of camp and hope that every one of the players attends are Rising Stars Summer Clinic. Last summer it was a big success and we anticipate it to be even better this year.
