DICKINSON, N.D. -- The men's and women's basketball staffs just finished their first camps of the summer. The "Blue Hawks Basketball Starter camp" ran this past week Monday through Wednesday. In total, 90 campers from grades 1-4 turned out for the camp.
"I had fun playing games and learned how to shoot, it was fun to be able to talk and hangout with the Blue Hawks," one camper said.
Campers worked with Dickinson State players and coaches on fundamental skills ranging from ball handling to positional technique.
"We had great enthusiasm all 3 days and the kids worked really hard. I think the campers had fun and I hope they learned new skills that will help them improve as a player," said Mark Graupe.
"It was a great opportunity for me being only here in Dickinson for about 10 days to meet and interact with the campers and the parents," men's head coach Justin Wetzel said. "I was very pleased with the kids' enthusiasm, and our Blue Hawks players who helped coach the camp, camp is always a great chance to give back to the game of basketball and community."
