NPCC to host Knights Basketball Camp


Kevin O'Connor's 2019 Knights Basketball Camp will be June 25-27 at North Platte Community College. Registrations will be accepted up until the day of the camp, but the deadline to register and be guaranteed a t-shirt is June 3. 

The goal of the camp is to provide participants with a general understanding of the game of basketball and to help them improve fundamental skills. The camp will focus on the basics of shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding and individual offensive and defensive skills as well as attitude development. 

Current and former players from the NPCC men's basketball team will assist with the camp, which will include a pizza party and pictures. Participants will receive free admission to 2019-20 NPCC men's basketball games if they wear their camp shirts. 

Camp sessions are from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. each day for grades 2-5 and from 1-3:30 p.m. each day for grades 6-9. The camp will be in the McDonald-Belton Gymnasium on NPCC's South Campus. 

The registration fee of $50 can be made payable to Kevin O'Connor and mailed to: Attention Kevin O'Connor, North Platte Community College South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Rd., North Platte, NE 69101.
