Present & future ballers benefit from camp
It wasn’t just the pros who were lacing up their shoes and hitting the hardwood last week. Newcastle athletes, from those entering first grade to 12th, showed up to the Dogie Dome last Monday through Wednesday for the 11th annual Future Dogie Camp.
The camp is presented through the collaboration of Dogie head basketball coaches Allen Von Eye and Tyler Bartlett, and it began as an instructional venue for fourth through eighth graders that was hosted and conducted by the NHS coaches with the help of the high school players. Last year, however, the format was changed, and the instructional portion of the camp was extended to first through third grade and to high school students as well.
In order to facilitate the change, Von Eye and Bartlett have brought in outside help. This year, Josh Mueller of Ambush Basketball was on hand to provide skills training to all who attended.
