 Monday July 6, 2015 to Friday July 10, the YMCA of Southern West Virginia held it’s annual Ron Kidd Basketball Camp. Coach Kidd, from Woodrow Wilson High School, worked with first, second, and third graders all week teaching the basics of the game. 

 “The week went great. We had first through third graders this week, from 9 to 12. They all had fun, they worked very hard this week, Coach Kidd put them through a lot of drills, a lot of training,” said YMCA Basketball Camp Director, Daniel Vass. “So overall, they’re better basketball players for coming this week.”

 The Ron Kidd Camp will continue over the next two weeks working with an older group and focusing on teamwork. From July 13-17 Coach Kidd will work with players in fourth, fifth, and sixth grade teaching the fundamentals: dribbling, shooting, etc. The camp will run all day including lunch for the campers.

 Then July 20-22 from 9 AM to Noon, an additional camp will take place where Coach Kidd will focus on teamwork with 2nd-6th grade players. “It’s all skills and abilities that you’ll learn to better fit into a team system. So it’s specifically generated towards building a team mentality in the players,” said Vass.

 You can find out more about the camp by visiting the YMCA’s website at www.ymcaswv.com. Coach Kidd has been the Head Coach at Woodrow Wilson since 2000, and is ranked 3rd all-time in the school’s history.
