BANNER ELK — Lees-McRae College is offering a one-day basketball camp for kindergarten through eighth grade players that will take place on the LMC campus May 14.

The Junior Bobcat Kids Camp will take place from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and the cost to attend is $50.

Players will be divided up into three different grade groups: Kindergarten through second grade, third grade through fifth grade and sixth grade through eighth grade.

The young athletes in attendance will have the chance to work with Bobcat players and coaches on multiple skills throughout the day, focusing on defense, ball handling, shooting, rebounding, screening and passing. Players will also work on guard play and post play to help grow the skill sets of each age group.

This is the first of three camps that will be offered by Lees-McRae. Later on, LMC will offer a team camp on June 14 and a camp for high school players on Aug. 6.

If you have questions or would like more information on the Junior Bobcat camp, contact assistant coach Daniel Waln through email at [email protected] or by phone at 336-977-3062.
