Jets host more than 50 campers at summer boys basketball camp

The Franklin Monroe boys basketball program under the direction of veteran head coach Troy Myers held three day camp for boys interested in bettering their skills and knowledge of the game with aspirations of playing basketball for the Jets and other schools in the area as well.

“We are thankful for the opportunity to hold the camp again and to enjoy a gym full of people playing the game and having fun doing it,” Myers stated. “Our staff is teaching for the right reasons and is certainly broadening the foundation for what can be built in the years ahead,”

The Jets hosted more than 50 you campers in the schools Hanger as the number in camp continue to rise each year.

“The camp was competitive with kids from several different districts attending as the numbers in camp continue to rise,” said Myers, “even with the absence of last year’s camp.”

The FM Jets high school and junior high coaching staff along with current high school basketball players were present to conduct the camp.

“Those young kids are obviously the future of the program,” said Coach Myers. “Our staff and players did an excellent job teaching fundamental skills as well as bits and pieces of the values we are convicted about.”

“Among those coaches, several got to take a team of their own and lead them throughout the skill work or competitions,” Myers added. “You could see how much those kids loved that.”
