North Surry finished up its four-day boys basketball camp on Thursday.
Dozens of boys from third grade to ninth took part in the drills, instruction and games put on by Coach Travis Gammons and his staff.
They were assisted by Ken Phillips, head coach at Gentry Middle School, and Jimmy Holleman, head coach at Meadowview. Several current and past Greyhound players also helped out.
“The kids seemed to have a good time,” said Gammons. They were an enthusiastic group and learned a lot of important stuff.
Gammons felt the camp went very well.
The scrimmages were competitive, as were the drills, he said. The camp keeps a record of the top performances in certain drills, and this group scored well compared to the past achievements.
“It was a good four days of basketball,” he said.
• North Surry girls basketball coach Shane Slate will hold his hoops camp at the same time as his volleyball camp July 9-12.
Volleyball is 8:30 a.m. to noon each day, then basketball is 1:30 to 5 p.m.
The cost is $45 for one sport or $80 for both camps and includes a T-shirt. The sessions are open to girls in grades five through nine.
Enrollment is limited to 40 girls per session, Slate noted, so early registration (before June 25) is encouraged. Forms are available at the school front office. The coach can be reached at email@example.com.
