"I'm really pleased with this year's turnout," said Radford University head women's basketball coach Tajama Abraham Ngongba, who saw 40 kids turnout last year. "We have kids from Radford, Christiansburg, Salem and Dublin, plus some other places here."
The four-day camp, which was open for boys and girls from the first to eighth grade, allowed them to learned the fundamental skills and the rules of the game through individual and group instruction, with practices, drills, and games.
The campers were grouped according to age and ability, and were taught on an individual and team basis, which included shooting, dribbling, passing, offensive and defensive techniques, as well as proper conditioning techniques.
"These youngsters are having fun and learning at the same time," added Ngongba. "This is the whole purpose of these camps, to learn and have fun."
