Registration Open for Summer Basketball Camp
The College of the Canyons men's basketball program invites boys and girls in third to eighth grade to participate in the 2019 Howard Fisher’s Cougar Basketball Camp, with two sessions running this summer.
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 camp session 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 and placed into groups that will allow them to maximize their opportunity to improve.
"This event is one of my most enjoyable responsibilities as a coach," said Fisher, who just completed his 19th 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 camp is scheduled:
- 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, July 8 to 11
- 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Thursday, July 15 to 18
All camp sessions will take place in the college's East P.E. gymnasium, located on the COC Valencia campus.
A $225 per player registration fee applies to each session.
Campers that register prior to the May 15 early registration date will save $25 per camper (registration must be received by 5 p.m. PST Wednesday, May 15, 2019).
Families with more than one camper can receive a discount of $20 for each additional child that registers by entering the promo code “Cougar2” at checkout.
All campers will receive a camp T-shirt. A written player evaluation and camp photo will also be provided at the end of the weekly session.
Campers are encouraged to bring their own lunch but may also purchase a box lunch at an additional cost. A Jersey Mike's box lunch option can be added for an additional $30 per camper per session (includes lunch for all four days of camp).
All proceeds directly support the COC men's basketball program.
Space for this year’s camp is limited.
