Orange Recreation Association offering basketball camp
ORANGE — This year will be the 11th year the Orange Recreation Association summer basketball camp program has been teaching basketball skills, sportsmanship and teamwork to young athletes.
Boys and girls, who will be entering grades 4 through 9 in the fall, meet at Fisher Hill School in Orange at 8:30 a.m. to share breakfast. That is followed by a morning full of skills, drills, instruction, games, contests and a scrimmage. At noon, the squad breaks for lunch and a rest period where the coaches present a different Coach’s Corner each day.
Next, the players are back on the court refining the skills instructed in the morning. With the ratio of four campers to each counselor, they receive individual attention. Another scrimmage and some contests as well as foul shooting round out the day, which ends at 2 p.m.
This year, the camp will be held next week and the week of July 14-18, from 8:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. in the Fisher Hill School Gym, Orange. It is open to any boy or girl in grades 4 through 9 from any town.
