The younger students in the basketball camp (entering grades 4-6) enjoyed crazy sock day as tournament play continued. Older campers (entering grades 7-9) took part in a free-throw contest, skill stations and five-on-five play.
In wrestling camp coach Jeff Nolan said the focus has been on offense from neutral with techniques driven in the double-leg, single-leg, and low-single positions.
“Today we did scoring from counter offense and getting to doubles and singles from opponent's shots. We are also having fun through team competitions including: Gladiator, Castle Ball, Mat Chess, and a cannonball contest in the pool,” said Nolan. “The kids have been awesome and I'm impressed with their ability to learn and apply skills at such a quick rate.”
