The Lake-Lehman School District held its annual youth boys basketball camp recently.
Jared James organized the camp as his senior project with the help of his varsity coach Brian Cutter and members of the varsity basketball team, including Adam Dizbon, Cody Paraschak, Ben Pilch, Tyler Bonner, Bill Hillman, Mike Simeon and Kyle James.
The camp ran from July 16-20 and was attended by 40 youths.
This year's camp saw a wide variety of both boys and girls from the Lake-Lehman and Dallas school districts whose ages ranged from 8 to 13. They were instructed on new stretches, drills, movies and fundamentals of the game and were all able to see improvement in their skills throughout the week.
The camp also saw guest appearances from Trevor Woodruff, head basketball coach at Misericordia University, and John Szela, director of Proshot Basketball Camp, who both worked with the young cagers on shooting and ball handling drills.
Each participant received an NBA t-shirt and Lake-Lehman hand towel. Others prizes, such as basketballs, arm sleeves and medals, were distributed to the winners at the end of the camp. The camp concluded with a pizza party in the cafeteria for everyone who attended.
All monies raised will help support the Lake-Lehman basketball program.
