Anna Independent School District summer basketball camps for boys are scheduled for June 12-15. Two camps are offered: a Fundamentals Camp for boys entering grades 1 through 6 in the fall and a Competition/Shooting Camp for boys entering grades 7 through 9. Competition/Shooting Camp will be held at the Anna High School gym from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Grades 1 through 3 for Fundamentals Camp will run from 8:15 to 11:30 a.m. at Joe Bryant Elementary, while grades 4 through 6 will take place in the Anna High School gym. All students should be dropped off and picked up at the high school, as grades 1 through 3 will be bused to and from Joe Bryant Elementary.
“The purpose of the camps is to emphasize the great game of basketball and to challenge each boy, regardless of his present abilities,” Anna Coyotes basketball coach Kyle Phifer said. “This will be fun-filled week of activities, but also a week of concentrated instruction for basketball. There will be numerous competitive drills along with hot shot, free throw, layup and game competitions. Special emphasis will also be on correct shooting technique.”
The camps will be staffed by Anna basketball coaches and/or ex-varsity players as well as other UIL coaches.
The cost of the four-day camps is $50 per camper and includes a camp T-shirt. A limited number of trophies, medals and awards will be distributed during competition activities. Deadline for enrollment is June 5, though enrollments will still be accepted after the deadline for an additional fee of $10. Make checks payable to Anna ISD and include them with your enrollment form. The forms may be downloaded at annaisd.org. Enter “2017 Camps” in the search window.
