Chattanooga Mocs Announce Summer Basketball Camp Dates

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team is hosting an individual camp June 16-20. The day camp is open to boys and girls with an age from entering second grade through eighth grade.

“We are excited about our first camp in Chattanooga,” Head Coach Will Wade said. “Our staff is very excited to work with the campers and help them learn the game of basketball. There is nothing better than teaching the game of basketball. We cannot wait to get started.”

During this fun-filled week, campers are exposed to the fundamentals of basketball. This is achieved through a mix of competitive games and skill station drill work with individual instruction and coaching from the camp staff.

Campers have the chance to win prizes and get autographs from their favorite Mocs players and coaches. Lunch is served daily and each camper receives a camp t-shirt and basketball.

Registration is 7:30-9 a.m., on June 16. Camp starts every morning at 9 a.m., and concludes at 4:30 p.m. The Friday awards ceremony starts at Noon. Campers are dropped off and picked up at Maclellan Gymnasium across the street from McKenzie Arena.

Roundabouts have been popping up all over Chattanooga over the past few years and for the most part have been successful.  Unfortunately there are some who just don’t get it as I have found out the hard way.    My latest instance was last week when a young woman on her cell phone almost t-boned me as she flew into the roundabout without yielding.  A near miss ...

Roy Exum: Oscar Brock’s True Passion

I don’t pay much attention to the Hamilton County School Board. Once the moon and the stars aligned behind Superintendent Rick Smith, you hear very little, if anything, from the nine-member council that oversees an annual budget of almost $400 million and employs 4,480 people. So chew this for a minute: approximately 2,000 of those people are not teachers. Yes, there are 78 principals ... (click for more)
