Lady Cats Basketball Coach Brittney Tisdell opened her three-day basketball camp for girls Monday morning, June 10, in the main gym at Sulphur Springs High School.
After honing the skills of high school athletes for a living, Coach Tisdell said it was a good change for her to work with beginners just learning the game. Coach Tisdell’s first camp Monday was for girls who will be entering the second through the fifth grades in the fall.
She said he enjoyed watching the young girls play the game. Coach Tisdell said she made sure her drills were doable by the youngest of campers. She said the numbers were small but were adequate so the girls could play against each other.
Besides, each girl got lots of attention. Coach Tisdell was aided by her new assistant coach Katie Webster, a Rockwall Heath grad who played college basketball at Long Beach State and at Tarleton State.
Coach Tisdell also got lots of help from her graduating seniors off of this year’s Lady Cats’ team. She said some of them have talked about possibly becoming a coach.
An afternoon camp was designed for more experienced girls, those who will enter grades six through nine this fall. The camp continues through Wednesday and girls are encouraged to show up for the rest of camp, even if they could not attend on Monday.
