About 60 youths learned basketball skills as well as lessons for life in June at our Hoops for Life camp in the Ryan Center. The camp was for girls in grades 4-8 and boys in grades 6-8.
Some of the coaches and helpers joining us included:
Pat Cavanaugh – Grove City High and the University of Pittsburgh.
Nadine Christy – All-time girls scoring leader at Hampton High.
Robert Shanahan – Hampton High and University of Pittsburgh-Johnstown.
Lauren Wasylson – St. Al’s graduate and current player at Mars High.
Brian Shanahan – Hampton High and Duquesne University
Ryan Luther – Hampton High and current player at Pitt.
Devin McGrath – OLSH and St. Vincent University
In between the boys’ and girls’ sessions, we featured 20-minute talks from these speakers:
Monday: Pat Cavanaugh – “What We Learn from Sports – Playing, Coaching, and Cheering with Class”
Tuesday: Professional Nutritionist Teddy Katz.: “How to Properly Feed Our Bodies”
Wednesday: Coach Tom McConnell – Head IUP Women’s Coach – “Faith-Guiding Decision-Making”
Thursday: Coach Bob McGraw – Head Slippery Rock Women’s Coach – “Persevering Through Adversity”
Thank you to all who helped with the camp!
