This annual hoop camp attracted 60 participants this winter from 11 school districts in a 50 mile radius of the gym at the Clare Church of the Nazarene in Clare.
Coach Bruce Owens said the four day camp has quickly grown over the past 5 years. Co-ed for age 4 thru 1st grade, this camp is set in a fun, energetic and mistake friendly environment!
“It’s all about teaching fundamental skills, having lots of fun and allowing the kids to learn to love the sport,” Owens said. “Whether it was making their first shot on the short hoops, coloring their Hooper homework sheets, reading their free copy of “Hooper Goes To Camp” or putting on that HOOZPONE T-shirt, it is exciting to watch”.
