South Tahoe basketball camps on tap

Tribune Staff Report

Local basketball players have ample opportunties to improve their games during five camps in June and July at South Tahoe High.

Scheduled are three specialized one-day camps, including one for perimeter players June 23, shooting stars July 7 and development of the complete player and secrets of the trade July 14.

Instruction will come from Viking coach Tom Orlich, Viking JV coach Bill Bartelson, former Douglas coach Aubrey McCreary and former STHS JV and Whittell coach Andy Hughes.

Boys and girls ages 9 to 18 are eligible. The cost is $35 per camper.

In addition, three-day South Tahoe Basketball Camps – the 23rd annual – are set for June 26-28 and July 17-19. The first camp is for girls ages 14-18 and boys 10-18. The second camp is for boys only.

Both camps cover all fundamentals, offense, defense, post play, footwork and movement without the ball. Many Viking alumni will assist with the camps.

“These camps have always been the backbone of our program. Our kids have always been able to learn so much during the off-season,” Orlich said.

The two three-day camps cost $75 per camper, but the fee is negotiable. Orlich will award scholarships to families who can’t afford the camps.

Campers are encouraged to enroll as soon as possible because of the likelihood of the camps to fill up quickly.

“We’re going to fill up these camps, but I want to fill them up with our people. I hate to turn away South Tahoe people,” Orlich said.

For registration information, phone Orlich at 541-4111.
