Kids rise and shine for basketball at Marysville camp

MARYSVILLE — Instead of staying indoors, kids are still getting up early to play basketball while they can in the summer.

Young boys and girls are staying active this summer by participating in camps such as this basketball one.

MARYSVILLE — Instead of staying indoors, kids are still getting up early to play basketball while they can in the summer.

The Marysville Ultimate Basketball Camp put on its annual basketball clinic for local kids wanting to learn the fundamentals of basketball or just brush up on skills at the Cedarcrest Middle School gymnasium.

Boys and girls from ages four to 11 enjoyed endurance drills, played games and learned the history of basketball offered by the clinic from July 11-14.

It’s helped kids like 11-year-old Aiden Johnson get out of bed and have fun.

“I like basketball a lot and it’s fun,” he said.

“I learned how to pivot and make good shots.”

Nine-year-old Harley Hall had similar thoughts. He also improved his skills in pivoting and passing but also appreciated “hanging with people and making new friends,” he said.
