Coaches and players from the Central College women’s basketball team recently got the chance to pass along the knowledge and passion they have for their sport during a camp that was held on campus in Pella.

Mike Jacobsma, head coach for the Dutch, says the camp provides an excellent opportunity for his players to get a different perspective on various aspects of the game of basketball and how to apply them, and serves as a way to build team camaraderie while also giving something back to girls who could potentially find themselves wearing Central red years down the road. Two separate camps – one for first through sixth graders, and another for seventh through twelfth grade girls – were held at the early part of last week.

The Dutch women’s basketball program will also be hosting a high school team camp at the beginning of next week.
