NOC girls’ basketball camp announced


  Applications are now being accepted for the Lady Mavs girls’ summer basketball camps at Northern Oklahoma College Tonkawa, according to Coach Greg Krause, camp director.

  “Summer is the best time to work on individual skills and fundamentals,” he advises. “Basketball teaches the value of improving as an individual, as well as committing to what’s best for the team.”

  Advance registration for the camps is requested since enrollment is limited. A brochure, schedule and application form are available on the NOC Maverick website at .

  Camp dates are July 12-15 for girls entering Grades 7-12 next fall; July 19-21, for girls entering Grades 1-3, and July 26-29, for girls entering grades 3-6.

  Grades 1-3 camp is a day camp from 9:30 a.m. – 11:30 a.m. for commuters only. Two lowered goals will be used for teaching offensive skills. Basics such as dribbling, passing, defensive and varied offensive skills will be introduced.

  Grades 3-6 and Grades 7-12 camps are day camps from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.  The training includes mass drills, station drills and team transition offense skills, such as floor balance, filling lanes, court spacing, advancing the ball and proper shot selection. Competitions in one-on-one, two-on-two and three-on-three drills, a free throw contest and league games are part of the daily schedule.

  Camp amenities include two gyms, the larger of which is air-conditioned and meals provided by the college cafeteria. Campers are supervised at all times by camp staff.

  Each girl will receive a scamp t-shirt and a regulation size camp basketball.

  Girls entering Grade 3 may register for either Grades 1-3 camp, Grades 3-6 camp or both, Krause says. After Krause receives the application and deposit fee, he will send an acceptance letter and detailed information to the camper.

  Krause is the Head Women’s Basketball Coach at NOC Tonkawa and has posted more than 600 wins.
