Western Nevada College is offering a Summer Youth Basketball Camp for girls and boys in third grade and older. The camp will meet Monday-Friday, July 13-17, 9 a.m.-noon, in the Elmo Dericco Gym at Churchill County High School. Cost is $100 per person with a family rate of $250 for three participants
The camp will be led by two college all-stars: CCHS graduate Liz Lewis and her Rocky Mountain College teammate, Janie Rayback.
"Both young ladies have just completed their fourth year of collegiate basketball, and we are very pleased to have them in our community this summer and willing to provide instruction for our young basketball players," Bus Scharmann, dean of the Fallon campus, said.
Rayback was team co-captain, team MVP and named to the First Team All-Conference in 2008-2009. In her final college season she was the Frontier Conference leading scorer and an honorable mention All-American as well as a member of the Frontier Conference All-Academic team.
Also a 2008-2009 team co-captain at Rocky Mountain College and First Team All-Conference, Lewis was team MVP for 2007-2008 and Rocky Mountain College Athlete of the Year. She held team assist honors and was also on the Frontier Conference All-Academic team.
Rayback said the camp will be energetic but not exhausting. "Our goal is not to wear them out. We will have plenty of water and snacks during our timeouts, but we have lots planned for the week and want to give these kids (and their parents) their money's worth." Depending on the number of registrants, additional helpers will be hired to assist Rayback and Lewis so that breakout groups are limited to eight youth.
Each registrant will receive a WNC Basketball Camp T-shirt. The camp will culminate in a basketball tournament before an audience of relatives and friends.
