The Juan Diego Catholic High School boys basketball program will host its annual basketball camp June 4–7 from 9 a.m. to noon. each day for players entering the fourth through ninth grades.

“We hold a kids camp every summer and usually get around 80 campers,” said head coach Drew Trost. “Parents rave about the camp as being both skill building and fun.”

Trost and his assistant coaches run the skills camp along with the Soaring Eagle varsity players, emphasizing fundamentals that will help young players improve. The coaches use drills, competitive games and contests to bring a balance of skill building and enjoyment to the camp, which will be held in the school’s main gym.

The cost is $80, which includes a camp T-shirt. Registrations are being taken at the high school’s main office and will also be accepted through the first day of the camp.

“The campers love interacting with our varsity players,” Trost said. “We work very hard to make sure that the campers learn a lot and have fun.”
