— The Steamboat Springs High School boys basketball team will host a basketball camp Monday through Thursday for players in fifth through eighth grades.

From 4 to 6 p.m. Monday and Tuesday, the camp will be for fifth- and sixth-grade boys. At the same time Wednesday and Thursday, the camp will be for seventh- and eighth-grade boys.

The camp will be in the Kelly Meek Gymnasium at Steamboat Springs High School and will focus on developing fundamental skills. The cost of the camp is $40 per player and includes a basketball. All proceeds benefit the Steamboat Springs High School basketball team.

In addition to Steamboat coach Luke DeWolfe, coaches Kelly Meek, Bruce Alston, Devin Borvansky, Henry How­ard and Jim Bronner will be there to instruct.

Current players on the Steam­boat boys basketball team also will attend.

“It’s a good way to become experienced at what we do at the high school,” DeWolfe said. “We want to develop some skills and give them tools to develop skills on their own.”

The camp will focus on defense, rebounding, shooting, ball handling, passing, offensive moves and teamwork.

DeWolfe said the camp, in its first year, is a good way to keep the pipeline from the middle school going all the way through the high school. It also serves as a way for players to get familiar with the high school coaching staff, the system and Steamboat basketball in general.

To register for the camp, pick up an entry form at the high school or call DeWolfe at 871-3686.

Those interested also can show up at the camp with a check on their age group’s designated days.
