Fredonia Hillbillies hosting several athletic camps

The Fredonia girls basketball camp will be held July 5-8.

The camp is designed to give athletes in the early grades an introduction to the game and to teach them the basic skills of dribbling, passing, shooting, defense and team play.

Focus in the upper grades will include skill development in the areas of shooting, scoring, passing, dribbling, footwork, rebounding, and team defense and offense. Athletes will learn skills and drills that they can take home and practice on their own so that they can be better prepared for participating at the modified, junior varsity and varsity levels.

All athletes will compete in different contests, such as 1-on-1, 2-on-2, hot-shot and free-throwing shooting. In addition, athletes will play at least two full-court 5-on-5 games per day.

The cost for the camp is $100 ($85 if paid by Friday).


The Fredonia Boys Basketball Camp will be held July 5-8.

Athletes will learn how to develop shooting mechanics as well as high-level techniques to break down defenses and to create easy scoring opportunities.

The cost of the camp is $100. ($85 if paid by Friday).


The “Gym Rats’ Camp, for boys and girls ages 4-9, will be held July 10-14.

Running from 9:30 a.m. to noon each day, the camp will allow youngsters to participate in lead-up games, relay races, and a lot of passing, dribbling, ballhandling and shooting. All campers get a free T-shirt, daily snack and a complementary youth-sized basketball.
