Basketball Camps Provide Lessons for On and Off the Court

Basketball Camps Provide Lessons for On and Off the Court

DuBOIS - Basketball camps for boys and girls held this week at Penn State DuBois gave youngsters of all ages the chance to build their basic skills in the game, and offered lessons in sportsmanship and discipline that can be applied to everyday life.

Offered as part of the Kids in College (KIC) and Art, Science, and Technology Institute Summer Youth Programs, the camps teach the fundamentals of the game, including ball handling, passing, defense, one-on-one moves, layups, and the basics of team play. Penn State DuBois men's and women's basketball coaches run the camps, and even teach young players drills that they can use to practice at home.

"We try to focus on the fundamentals, plus we stress the importance of hard work and sportsmanship," said Penn State DuBois head men's basketball coach Dave Bennett.

This year, camps were available for children in grades one through eight. Noting the important structure and discipline that children can learn by participating in athletics, Bennett said the camps are a great way to build life-skills.

"The competitiveness we teach in sports shows children of this age how to strive to do well, work together with team mates, and work hard," Bennett said. "It goes beyond athletics. It helps to instill discipline and a work ethic that will extend into their whole life."

Campus sports camps for this summer are not over yet. There's still time for boys in grades one through twelve to sign up for the Penn State DuBois Lions Wrestling Camp.
The wresting camp is scheduled for Monday, July 9, through Thursday, July 12. It will run from 9:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. daily.
