Jefferson Forest boys hoops camp begins
BEDFORD CO., Va. (WSET) - The 4-day Jefferson Forest Basketball Kids Camp began Monday at the high school and runs each morning from 8 'til noon through Thursday.
Cavaliers head coach Cameron Shepherd is leading the camp, in its second year, with help from his players. Attendance this year has nearly doubled to 65 with ages ranging from 5 to 13.
The young campers got to cheer on some JF players in a brief dunk contest at the end of today's session.
Shepherd says the goal is for kids to walk away with some excitement and enjoyment towards basketball.
Cameron Shepherd, JEFFERSON FOR5EST BOYS BASKETBALL COACH, said "That's one thing we're stressing is, you know, have a positive attitude. Even if you struggle with something, you know, at the beginning of camp, you work and you listen and you'll get better by the end of camp."
