Youngsters learn fundamental skills
Craig Dailey, head coach for the Marshall Academy Patriots basketball teams, recently held a camp for boys and girls who are bound for first grade through third grade.
Each day Coach Dailey began basketball camp with the Jr. Patriots by working on fundamental skills. After these drills the players got to participate in individual competitions which included free throws, lay-ups, hot shots, and one-on-one.
Each day Coach Dailey also had the players work on their skills of playing in game situations by having team competitions.
A great week was had by all the Jr. Patriots and Coach Dailey. Patriot basketball is building for a bright future by working on skills when players are at a young age.
Some of the individual competition winners included third grader Zach Callicut, free throws; third grader Boyce McKinney, hot shots and lay-ups; and third grader Grant Poteet, one-on-one. For the girls third graders Blake Martin and Vicky Farris took first or second place in every individual competition.
