The Coaching staff of the Lady Rattler basketball squad will be holding their Lady Rattler “Nothing but Net” Basketball Camp June 14-18, and according to Lady Rattler head coach Alicia Trujillo, she is looking forward to a good week of basketball during the middle of June.
Trujillo said she and fellow Lady Rattler Coach Albert Trujillo will be in charge of the camp which will stress the “fundamentals of the game.” “But it will have an emphasis on the importance of teamwork, too,” said Trujillo.
Albert Trujillo said the fundamentals which they will be stressing will be such things as the correct way of dribbling, passing and shooting and the coaches and staff will be working with the campers on their skills on a one-on-one basis which he says is the most effective way to communicate those skills.
The coaches say they in addition to the regular camp activities there will be periodic shooting contests and a watermelon feed on the final day of the camp.
According to Alicia Trujillo the will be open to both girls and boys who want to learn the specifics of the game.
The camp will take place at the Tucumcari Elementary Gymnasium and third through sixth graders will be at camp from 9 a.m. to noon and seventh through 12th graders will be from 1-4 p.m. Those interested should contact Coach Trujillo at 2010 S. Second St. The cost for the camp is $30.
