Winter Break Mini-Camp
Boys Grades 3-6 and Girls Grades 3-8
Come work on your basketball skills under the guidance of Coach Washington, the new boys’ basketball coach at South Whidbey High School, and his staff and players. This camp is for all skill levels and will serve as a great way to be active over winter break, build your skills, and to get ready for the basketball season before the youth basketball league begins in January. Early registration is encouraged, space is limited and athletes are admitted on a first come, first served basis.
What to bring: A ball clearly marked with your name, water bottle, proper basketball attire (shoes with non-marking soles), shorts, and your positive attitude!
A small revision: Boys in grades 7-8 who attend a South Whidbey school are unfortunately unable to participate in this mini-camp/clinic due to school athletic rules about school coaches and when they can (or cannot) coach youth in the school district. It's kind of complicated, and we apologize for any disappointment this causes.
