Pekin hosts elementary basketball camp

The Pekin girls basketball camp was held the first week of June and 63 girls from kindergarten to 6th grade participated. During the week the girls worked on fundamentals such as dribbling, passing, and shooting. The girls also learned about team concept, defense, footwork and how the game is played. The girls also had a chance to play different games and eat popsicles between breaks.


On Friday, all of the girls went to the pool in Fairfield before returning to Pekin to receive their t-shirt and basketball.


Helping Coach Eidahl conduct the camp were Haley Gambell, Aspen Clark, Mia Clark, Taylor Sylvester and Sarah Eubanks.
