With the school year nearing its end, the Arlington Eagles Boys Basketball Program is coming together to put on their 26th Annual Basketball Camp.
Arlington will be offering three camps over the next two weeks including ones for grades K-3rd, 4th-6th and 7th-9th.
Grades K-3rd will be held at the Arlington Boys & Girls Club, June 10-12, at 4:15-6:15 p.m. The camp costs $50 and that includes a camp T-shirt, basketball and prizes that will be given out throughout the drills/scrimmages.
Grades 4th-6th and 7th-9th will be held at the Arlington High School Gym June 3-6. The 7th-9th session is scheduled to be held from 3-5:15 p.m. and the 4th-6th graders will have camp right after from 5:45-8 p.m. The cost for the camps will be $100 and will also include a T-shirt, basketball and prizes.
“It’s a great way to connect with the kids and does a good job of letting the local youth get involved with our program. We get to give the kids an environment where they can have a lot of fun while also letting them be competitive,” said Arlington Head Coach Nick Brown.
The Eagles’ basketball program is known for their incredible fundamentals on both ends of the court and their ability to play through each position with an unselfish team-first mindset. Each camper will get to learn and experience what has made Arlington one of the best teams in the conference year-in and year-out.
Alongside instruction from the Eagles’ coaching staff, campers will also receive hands-on coaching from current players on the Arlington High School varsity roster.
“I feel responsible for every kid that picks up a ball and takes a shot in the county. Not all of them are going to play for me, but it’s important that I do everything I can to instill great sportsmanship. It’s more than just playing the game, it’s about playing the right way and showing each other respect,” said Coach Brown.
