The McHenry County College Scots’ Department of Athletics is sponsoring the 11th annual ScotStars basketball all skills camps and a specialty shooting camp, Monday through Thursday, June 11-14.
There will be an all skills camp for boys and girls entering 2nd through 4th grades from 9 to 11:15 a.m. A basketball specialty shooting camp for those entering 2nd through 8th grades will take place from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. Also, there will be an all skills camp for participants in 5th through 8th grades from 1:15 to 3:30 p.m.
The camps are coordinated and taught by the MCC men’s and women’s basketball coaching staffs.
ScotStars camps are held in the newly-renovated and air-conditioned MCC Tartan Gym, Bldg., A, on campus in Crystal Lake.
The registration telephone number is (815) 455-8588. Participants will receive an MCC ScotStars camp T-shirt, a group photo and a certificate of completion, all included in the registration fee.
Campers will be grouped by age and/or ability whenever feasible. The camp provides instruction as well as valuable evaluation and review. Participants will learn age-appropriate skills, mental aspects, strategy, improve self-confidence, ability and enjoyment, make new friends and appreciate the positive aspects of basketball, under the guidance of college coaches, all in a quality collegiate environment, that’s educational, affordable and close to home.
Parents and campers should arrive 15 to 20 minutes early on the first day of camp (Monday, June 11) to receive orientation information and to fill out a required parental waiver form. Participating with teams, neighbors, relatives and/or friends is encouraged and welcomed.
Other MCC ScotStars sports camps being offered, July 9 – 12 and 16 – 19, are all skills soccer camps and soccer specialty shooting and goalkeeping for boys and girls, respectively. Each all skills camp is $59 for the week, including the soccer specialty camps.
The basketball specialty shooting camps are only $39 and run back-to-back with the all-skills camps, during the same week. Sign up for both basketball camp opportunities, all-skills and specialty shooting, at the rate of $98.
