City of Williamsburg logoWilliamsburg Parks and Recreation will hold a High Intensity Basketball Camp later this month at the Quarterpath Recreation Center.

The camp, scheduled for July 27 through 30, will be taught by new Jamestown boys basketball coach and former Williamsburg Christian Academy girls basketball coach Donovan Bridgeforth.

Tyler Cobb, a recreation supervisor with Williamsburg Parks and Recreation, encouraged rising seventh- to 12th-graders looking to try out for their respective high school junior varsity and varsity basketball teams to attend the camp.

“It’s a great opportunity to try to better yourself at every phase of the game and get ready for the upcoming school season,” he said.

While the camp is geared more toward competitive players, Cobb said beginners are welcome to register for the camp. Because of the wide variety of drills being taught by Bridgeforth, Cobb thinks novices will gain more all-around knowledge of the game and improve their skill sets.

For $60, campgoers will get three hours of instruction from Bridgeforth and his staff from 9 a.m. to noon over the four-day span of the camp. On the last day of the camp, each participant will also receive a mystery “camp gift.”

Participants should come to the camp dressed ready to play basketball with proper basketball shoes and clothing. To register for the camp, visit the Quarterpath Recreation Center or call 757-259-3760. Registration ends July 24.
