Lamar University hosts basketball camp
School's out and that means plenty of area kids are looking for something to do, and if you're an aspiring student athlete-- even if you're not-- Lamar University is your one-stop spot to better yourself at your chosen sport. Today at the Montagne Center was the start of the Pat Knight boys' basketball camp. Kids ranging in age from 6 to 18 from all across Southeast Texas were up and at 'em early this morning, listening and following the instruction offered from Coach Knight and his Lamar men's basketball staff. The camp covers all the basics: ball handling, shooting, passing and more; and there's something to be learned by all levels from the beginner to the varsity player, and for Coach Knight, it's nice to teach the game without the pressure to win. If this camp looks like something you're interested in-- or you believe it's something your kids would like-- then you'll be happy to know there's a second week of the Pat Knight boys' basketball camp coming up next week-- June 24-27 from 8a.m. until noon. Again, the camp is open to boys ages 6-18, and the cost is $175. For more info or to register-- call 880-8301.
