NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee State University women’s basketball team concluded its Kid’s Camp last week.
The camp, which welcomed youth in grades K-12, was held on Friday and Saturday from 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. in the Gentry Center.
The two-day event saw the campers participating in a number of basketball drills to improve their overall basketball performance. They focused on many areas including ball handling, passing, shooting and free-throws.
“We tried to get as many age groups as possible so that we could work on the basic fundamentals of basketball,” said assistant coach Chelsia Lymon. “Everybody has to start somewhere. That’s a big thing that we all need to start focusing on with these young kids. So that when they do get to college they will already have a good foundation.”
The skills camp was meant to expose the young ladies to the basic fundamentals of basketball while giving them the knowledge they need to improve their overall skillset.
“I think it turned out pretty good,” Lymon continued. “I believe it will build as the years go on. Now it’s just about hitting the ground and getting the word out to more young ladies.”
