Fun for current and future Warriors at summer camp

The 2011 Hawaii Basketball Camp came to a close last week, and dozens of youth players from around the state walked away with prizes, newfound skills, and everlasting memories.

“We have a couple of players here – Miah Ostrowski and Pi’i Minns – who both grew up right here in Hawaii who are playing Division I basketball,” Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold said to the group of youth players. “In a few years, some of you guys could be playing here. You can do it, you can all do it.”

Ostrowski and Minns served as camp counselors, as did Zane Johnson. All three players will return to the Warrior roster next season, and they said they had as much fun as the youth players during the camp.

Johnson, for example, served as the coach of a team nicknamed “Warriors” during the final day of scrimmages. When his team hit a buzzer-beater in the playoffs, Johnson stormed the court in celebration with his players.

“We’re having a blast,” Johnson said.

Minns worked with some of the younger groups, and was coach of a team nicknamed “Mustangs.” His team showed vast improvement, working its way back from a couple of losses to win the championship of their division.

“Just keep playing hard and good things will happen,” Minns said he told his team.

Arnold said the team will host another series of camps for youth players next summer.

  1. Was that coach Arnold’s son that hit the game winner?

  2. Good video Dayton,keep up the good work.

  3. all of the arnold kids’ names start with an ‘A’.

    Analise, Ashton, Ally, Addison and Ace.

  4. That was not one of Gib Arnold’s sons hitting the game-winner. However, a name to remember for the near future is Ashton Arnold.

    The coach’s son is a budding point guard with some slick ball-handling skills. He’s still in middle school but played with the high school group during the camp.

  5. Good stuff. Potential UH players?!?
