Bates said she enjoys hosting the camps because it allows her and her program to connect with the community.

“We see our future athletes moving through the system,” Bates said. “They get to know us as coaches. It also plants a small seed. Some of our high school students come there. He makes that connection. It’s not just Indians competing. Now when they go to a game they know “Hey, it’s Marlee”. She dragged me to camp. It makes it more personal and builds that connection so they’re more excited to support us.

PNG head basketball coach Chris Smith said he also appreciated the opportunity to get to know the younger members of the community.

“We get to know every kid from elementary age through high school,” Smith said. “We can see their basketball skills and get them excited about basketball. Some of them may not have played before. We get them excited to play college or Little Dribblers. We can be with them for three days and let them have fun.

Bates said the camps also encourage kids to be active and outdoors.

“I have two children myself,” she says. “Anything I can do to get them off the devices and get them wiggling and shaking is a win in my book. Besides the athletic work they get, the social interaction is also important. It’s beneficial in many ways . »

Both coaches said the camps are for kids of all skill levels and encourage anyone interested to sign up.

The camps are for children entering kindergarten through children entering ninth grade.
