On Saturday, Jan. 28, the Lakeland College women's basketball team hosted the inaugural Jr. Muskies Skills Camp in the Moose and Dona Woltzen Gymnasium.
The Muskies and head coach Lindsey Vande Hoef invited local fourth and fifth graders to participate in a free skills camp sponsored by the women's basketball program. The (number of campers) campers learned valuable basketball skills in a no-pressure environment while interacting with members of Lakeland's basketball team.
The campers went through several different drills and also participated in some relay races and 3-on-3 half court drills. Afterwards, each camper was given a signed team poster as well as free passes to watch the men's and women's basketball games against MSOE. During halftime of each game, the campers participated in the Jr. Muskies sock shot, with winners receiving a signed team basketball.
On Thursday, Jan. 26, the women's basketball team also held an after-school skills camp at Sheboygan's Sheridan Elementary School. Fourth and fifth graders worked closely with the student-athletes and coaches to improve their game.
"We are so grateful for all the work that the team invested in the basketball clinic at Sheridan," said Blanca Wick, after school/parent involvement coordinator at Sheridan. "The event was wonderful and the children had so much fun. They keep asking me when you are coming back. What a great group of ladies and helpers you brought. It was a delight meeting everybody."
Each year, Vande Hoef plans to identify ways to get local students involved in basketball and show Lakeland's student-athletes that they can have impact beyond the court.
