Lady Leopard Basketball Camp Teaches Life Skills
Each day the campers attending the Lady Leopards summer basketball camp were given a specific word as the focus of the day. Those words were Attitude, Energy, Encouragement, and Coachable. Girls basketball head coach Lance Boxell made sure to point out to the participants that these words were important beyond the game. As the players went through week Coach Boxell and current Lady Leopards players led the players through drills and scrimmages while continuing to remind the athletes about the characteristics that make them winners on and off the court. Coach Boxell noted that beyond having fun he wanted the athletes to "take away one or two things that makes them a better player while also building pride in playing Lady Lovejoy basketball." The camp took place June 18-21st and included 35 kids grades K-4th and 65 kids grades 5th-9th.
