Summer camp opens for youth players

Dozens of youth players took the opportunity to catch bounce passes from Miah Ostrowski and shoot 3-pointers with Zane Johnson, as the Hawaii Basketball Camp opened its 2011 session on May 30.

“It was good fun working with the kids,” said Ostrowski, the team’s starting point guard last season. “Some of them are real funny … a lot of them got talent.”

Hawaii head coach Gib Arnold and his coaching staff provides most of the instruction, with some of the current players – such as Ostrowski and Johnson – assisting. The youth participants learn various drills during the morning hours, then participate in scrimmages and shooting games in the afternoon (after a break for lunch).

Each camp session lasts four days, with each day running from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. It is open to boys and girls ages 5 to 17, and the players are separated by age and skill level to assure full participation.

“We spent the morning doing fundamentals – we always do six stations of fundamentals for a couple hours, so hopefully they go home each day learning at least six new fundamentals of basketball,” Arnold said after the opening day. “And then spent the afternoon playing games and competition.”

The youth players also get the rare opportunity to dribble and shoot on the Stan Sheriff Center court, although the practice gyms are also used.

There will be another session from June 6 to 9. Registration will be accepted on the morning of June 6, starting around 8:30 a.m. For more information, please visit www.hawaiibasketballcamp.com.
