Lady Cats Basketball Coach Jeff Chapman opened his three-day girls basketball camp Monday morning in the main gym on the Sulphur Springs High School campus. It’s running from 9 a.m. until noon through Wednesday. Coach Chapman welcomed 24 girls and he said it was a pretty good turnout. With those numbers, he said each kid would be able to receive individual instruction on basketball fundamentals.
Day one featured how to hold a basketball, layup drills using the right and left hand, ball handling, shooting and dribbling. Coach Chapman said he hoped the camp would peak the young girls’ interest in basketball so they would play when they get older. He said he liked working with the youngsters.
Coach Chapman is being assisted at the camp by by his assistant coach Ashton Wells, middle school coach Nickie Pannell and his wife, Karen, who played college basketball. Several of Coach Chapman’s current players were observing camp and they were introduced to the campers.
