HELENA — The Frontier Conference champion Carroll College women’s basketball team is putting on a skills academy this week. It’s just the first of many camps for the champs this summer, but this one is to help build the basic skill sets for future Saints hoopers.
For as much as it benefits the campers, the players teaching in the gym this week get a lot out of it, too.
“I think they are unbelievable for our community engagement,” said head coach Rachelle Sayers. “I think we have a lot of great players in Helena, we have a lot of kids that go out and play a ton of basketball, but I don’t know that they don’t always get the skill instruction. So our focus in all of our camps is always their skill development, giving them the knowledge to practice on their own and giving them a chance to learn as much as they can about the game, so that is kind of our focus. I think it’s great for our players to be able to engage with the kids and it’s good for them to have to teach these skills. They all know how to do them, but to be able to teach them is sometimes a different story.”
