Shooting hoops and taking names

Posted

Seventy players perfected their dribbling, passing and shooting at the Jefferson County Parks and Recreation summer basketball camp that took place from July 8-11 at Blue Heron Middle School.

Players ranged from ages 6 to 13 and were coached by Chris Macklin, the camp director, and high school and middle school athletes from Chimacum and Port Townsend, including Abbie Liske, Mikiah Winter, Ashlyn Winsheimer, Anna Molotsky, Aurin Asbell, Jordyn King, Madeline Dowling, Aidan Petta, Michael Petta, Nico Winegar, Katie Ballard, Nikki deLong-Robison, and Avi Moore.

“There’s a lot of fundamentals to know about this game,” said Nate Winegar, who participated in the camp.

Students learned techniques to help improve their basketball skills, and the week ended with tournament play, where they were able to compete against each other.

“I’m learning lots of passing, shooting, teamwork, and everything,” said Rennie O’Donnell. “Also what I like is just learning skills that I don’t know and probably just playing with teammates and having fun.”
