Hoops Camp at El Dorado

By From page A8 | July 04, 2013

El Dorado High freshman boys basketball coach Bob Ackley held a Hoops Camp for girls in grades 3-8 last week at the large gym after holding a similar camp for boys the week before.

The boys turnout numbered 37 while 11 attended last week. The camp lost a day due to rains that occured as the gym underwent a new roof.

The girls went through drills such as: Fake a pass/make a pass, pass and go, layups, line drills, ball handling, weaves, pivoting, boxing out and also learned court knowledge.

Ahead on the agenda was good shooting form, coming to the ball and others.
