KG Parks & Recreation basketball campers visit the Mystics

altSummer is synonymous with camp, at least for many of the youth who have been enjoying a break from the regular school year. Last week, I had the pleasure of coaching, along with several other coaches, 30 rising fourth through ninth grade girls in the sixth annual girls’ basketball camp sponsored by King George Parks and Recreation. The week-long camp made good use of the spacious new courts at the King George High School gymnasium.
From Monday to Friday, the campers worked on their basketball skills, as well as team camaraderie. The campers participated in stations, lessons, drills, individual and team competitions, and basketball fun throughout the week. Each day two enthusiast campers were chosen for the “Hustle of the Day” Award.

The campers were also treated to a trip up to the Verizon Center in Washington, D.C., on Thursday evening to watch the WNBA Washington Mystics take on the Chicago Sky, a tradition of the camp. The Mystics organization provided extra special treatment to the King George girls. The camp girls were invited to go onto the floor prior to the game to form a fan tunnel, then the home team ran through, high fiving the girls as they entered the stadium. Also, several of the King George girls were chosen to receive an autographed WNBA ball at the start of the ESPN2 broadcasted game.
Our group of fans, including many parents who attended the game with our campers, cheered vigorously throughout the game, as the Mystics handily controlled the game, winning 75-64. Following the game, the campers enjoyed an autograph session with two of the Mystics players, Marissa Coleman and Nikki Blue. Thanks to the Mystics organization for providing these young people with an inspiring, fun-filled evening!
Thanks to King George Parks & Recreation and the coaches: Christine Gathers, Gwynette Hammond, Kayla Brabant, Sierra King, Arkea McDowney, Cassie Phillips, Ricketta Gorham, Jamia Coleman, for their tireless efforts to help make the camp a success!
