Van-Far teaches basketball to young children

Posted

It isn’t too early to learn basketball’s fundamentals.

That was the reasoning Van-Far head girls basketball coach Heather Minter and a few Lady Indians spent May 31-June 3 at basketball camps for children in grades first through fifth at the elementary school and grades sixth through eighth at the high school.

“It starts at a young age,” Minter said. “This is our third year doing it. It’s good to see (kids come out).”

Minter said the camp was opened up for boys also, adding a couple more children to the total 27 that signed up for camp — 17 in the first-through-fifth group and the other in the older group. Last year, Minter said the camp had about 20 children.

On June 3, the younger group worked through various drills like passing, shooting and footwork with candy being distributed to the campers after a hard day’s work.
“A lot of young girls want to play,” Minter said. “We’re excited to have them.”
