Nearly 100 youth basketball players attended the new Stangs Basketball Shooting Camp at Oakdale High School on Saturday morning, July 24. With Oakdale High School basketball coaches in attendance to help the youngsters out, the three-hour camp helped players from the ages of eight to 17 work on their hoop skills. Players went through different drills to help improve and learn the proper way to do lay-ups, shooting skills and dribbling. Oakdale used both gyms at the school to reduce the number of players and staff being in one location.
“I think it was a success, kids really had a great time,” said OHS basketball coach Daniel Linder. “The kids learned something new about basketball, no matter what their skill level is at.”
The Stangs Basketball program will continue throughout the next month and will continue to help prepare them for the next level of competition.
“That’s what this is about. We want to help the youth in our community by teaching them the fundamentals of basketball. To teach them about teamwork and positivity as well.”
Currently the program is for boys grades six through eight. If you would like to sign up your son for the program, reach out to coach Linder via email at email@example.com.
