“The camps got competitive sports back in their heads and their minds start working on their competitive sides.”
Eggleston said of the 50 or so girls enrolled, about 40 attended both camps. Campers were charged more for participating in both camps, and each camp had a separate charge if a girl only wanted to participate in one camp.
“This has been our biggest participation in girls’ camps in awhile,” Eggleston said. “I think the camps were good for all ages, but particularly for the girls who will be playing junior high and ninth-grade sports this year.
“This was also good for the coaches to see the incoming freshmen,” Eggleston said. “That is a huge class with a lot of good athletes. As coaches, these camps were good for us because we have not seen them since last season.
“We now know a lot about each girl, what they can and cannot do. This will help us to prepare for our respective seasons.”
Even though the Lady Rams have yet to hire a new head basketball coach, Eggleston said it really didn’t matter because both camps focused on basic fundamentals.
“It doesn’t matter what level you are on or grade you are in, fundamentals are key,” she said. “If these girls can take these fundamentals and be successful at them, then they will be that much better.
“If we can be fundamentally sound, we will have a huge advantage, no matter which sport. I feel like in both basketball and volleyball we are emphasizing the fundamentals.”
