Several up and coming youth basketball stars had the opportunity to enhance their level of production on the hardwood last week by participating at the 2018 Prescott Curley Wolves Skills and Drills Basketball Academy held at the Prescott Sports Arena.
This skills and drills academy featured youth campers in the 1st-6th grades with emphasis to learn the fundamentals of basketball as well as having fun during daily competitions. This was a three-day skill developmental camp May 21-23 with a variety of exercises and stations to work on the offensive and defensive techniques during the camp.
Camp director and Prescott senior and junior high basketball head coach Beau Brickell was very pleased by the number of kids participating at this year's camp. Brickell also appreciated the help from Prescott senior and junior high head coach B.J. Brown and assistant coach Heidi Graham to assist him with camp responsibilities. Several Curley Wolves and Lady Wolves basketball team members served as coaches during the camp to demonstrate the skills and drills at each station. Brickell thought the camp turned out productively and looks forward to another year in 2019.
"I though the camp went really well. We had a great number around 35 kids this year. We gave the kids a little bit of how our high school level of basketball is taught to give them skill development with ball movement and shooting stations," Brickell said.
In the future, Brickell hopes more youth will participate in this skills and drills academy to grow to be one of the biggest productive basketball camps in Southwest Arkansas.
Campers participated ball handling, speed dribble, hustle, free-throw shooting, defensive structure and competed in 3 on 3, 1 on 1 and hot shot competitions.
To wrap up camp daily, campers were awarded certificates and each age division named it's 2018 boy and girl outstanding camper.
