CORPUS CHRISTI - The Texas A&M - Corpus Christi men's basketball staff saw a strong individual summer camp season wind down today, as the final day camp and 4-on-4 camp wrapped up at Moody Fieldhouse. Over the three weeks of camp, approximately 200 youths took part in the Islanders Basketball Camp.
"I've always really enjoyed summer camps because they give me the opportunity to teach the game of basketball on a fundamental level," Head Coach Willis Wilson said. "This group was a lot of fun to work with, and I think they really enjoyed it. We love anything we can do to engage the Corpus Christi community, and our camps are a big part of it."
The Islanders featured two Saturday camps - one focusing on shooting and the other on positional skills - in addition to the week-long camps that concluded this week. Campers and parents alike showed strong enthusiasm for the camps.
"It's just amazing the improvement I've seen in these kids since Monday," said Nancy Ross, whose grandson Nate took part in the Day Camp. "This is a fantastic group of coaches. Nate's gone to high school camp before but this is just a different level. All my grandson does is talk about the coaches - the respect he has for them is just amazing."
Islanders Basketball Camp still has one more "Power Hour" - scheduled from 6-7 p.m. on Wednesday, June 22 - in addition to the Team Camp on June 25-26. For more information, go to islandersbasketballcamp.com.
