They saved their best for last. After a slow start in the early part of the Rappahannock Swim League (RSL) American Division Finals, the Eden Estate Eels rallied to win the first ever RSL finals meet at the King George YMCA.
The history-making event took place on Saturday, July 29, throughout the early morning and afternoon. With nearly 1,200 people covering every part of the YMCA facility, it is abundantly clear that the sport of swimming is stronger than ever.
The Eels capitalized on personal time improvements and the final’s three-division format to upset the field of six teams. The format allows 600 swimmers to compete on a scaled based on parity and entry times, where the slowest swimmer never swims against the fastest swimmer. Also, the format allows more swimmers to earn awards.

Drifter campers rule the Dome

altBasketball mania was the theme last week at Colonial Beach High School. The 22nd annual Drifter Basketball Camp was held last week at the air-conditioned Drifterdome, with 82 campers learning fundamentals and competing in fun games and contests. Steve Swope, camp director and head varsity basketball coach at Colonial Beach High School, was extremely pleased with the turnout and success of the week long camp.
 “We had a great group of kids who came in every day ready to work hard, have fun and compete in this great sport of basketball,” he said. “Campers were a delight to work with and really improved their game throughout the course of the week.”
Two sessions were held during the day for two different age brackets. Boys and girls, ages 5-12 participated from 9 a.m. until noon each day, followed by ages 13-18 from 2-5 p.m. along with another young group in the afternoon.
The campers learned the six basic fundamentals of basketball as they rotated through stations of ball handling, passing, offensive moves, rebounding, shooting and defensive moves. Campers were also charted daily in three shooting contests: Hot shot, 3-pointers and free throws. Games of 1 vs. 1, 3 vs. 3, and 5 vs. 5 were played throughout the week, concluding with tournament championships on the last day. Each camper also received an evaluation card and Drifter Camp T-shirt.

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.
