Registration Under Way for Cougar Basketball Summer Camp

The College of the Canyons men’s basketball program invites boys and girls ages 6 to 14 to participate in the 2016 Howard Fisher Cougar Basketball Camp, with two sessions running in June.

Open to players of all skill levels, each four-day camp session will provide attendees with a unique opportunity to learn new techniques and strengthen current skills. 

Camp meetings will be led by COC men’s basketball head coach Howard Fisher, his staff of assistants and intercollegiate players from the eight-time Western State Conference champion men’s basketball program.

All major areas of basketball will be covered in detail, including: shooting, passing, ball handling, individual offense, defense, rebounding, and team play. 

Each of the four camp sessions will be highlighted by fundamental instruction, skills contests, guest speakers and team competition.

Taking grade and age into account, each camper will be evaluated on the first day of camp to place them into groups that will allow them to maximize their opportunity to improve. Each camper will receive a written evaluation at the end of the camp session.

“This event is one of my most enjoyable responsibilities as a coach,” said Fisher, who just completed his 16th season at the helm of the COC men’s basketball program. “The Cougar Basketball Camp provides a fun, fast-paced environment for young people to learn the game as well as meet new friends. Our staff strives to instill confidence in every camper, while making sure the sport of basketball is always fun.”

The 2016 Cougar Basketball Camp will run during the following dates and times:

June 20-23 — 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (M/T/W/Th)

June 27-30 — 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. (M/T/W/Th)

All camp sessions will take place in the college’s West P.E. gymnasium, located on the COC Valencia campus.

A $225 per player registration fee applies to each session. Every camper will receive a Cougar Basketball Camp T-shirt and camp photograph.
Campers are encouraged to bring their own lunch, but may also purchase a box lunch at an additional cost.

Space for the 2016 Cougar Basketball Camp is limited.
