What to expect
Upward Sports Basketball Camp offers opportunities for young athletes to discover and refine their athletic skills while cultivating a passion for the sport. Through age-appropriate team play, athletes begin to build positive character traits that will allow them to encourage, strengthen, and motivate themselves and their fellow teammates. As they learn and follow game rules, young athletes will also learn the value of sportsmanship with a healthy competitive spirit. Join us July 24th – 28th here at Rolling Hills. This will be a great week of learning to play basketball, hearing about God and having a great time with friends! We are proud to have our own Brian Botteen, SRVHS Varsity Basketball Coach directing it along with members from his team! Sign up today!
Who can come?
All kids who are entering 1st – 5th grade in the Fall.
We are looking for team leaders and volunteers for our Upward Basketball Camp this July 24-28th! Brian Botteen and his team teach the skills. We need team leaders to take kids to each station and teach during group time.
