Thunder Youth Basketball Camp is Coming to Wichita!

Thanks to OKC Thunder Basketball for sponsoring this post and bringing an amazing summer camp experience to Wichita kids!

Summer comes every year, and with it, the question, what are the kids going to do to stay active and limit screen time? What about a day camp that teaches the fundamentals of basketball in a hands-on, team-centric environment that also incorporates all the fun of the NBA experience?

Thunder Youth Basketball Camp on August 10th

The Oklahoma City Thunder is bringing Thunder Youth Basketball to Bel Aire, Kansas on Aug. 10! Presented by Cox Communications, the event marks the first time the Thunder will host a camp in the Wichita area. Campers will have the opportunity to take part in development drills designed to improve skill sets within defense, ball-handling, shooting, layups and more. Taking place at Wichita Hoops, the camp is open to boys and girls, ages 6-14.

“Whether your child has five years of basketball under their belt, or they’re picking up a ball for the first time, they’re going to learn something new at our camp in Wichita,” said Michelle Matthews, Thunder Youth Basketball program manager. “We’ll spend the afternoon teaching the basics, instilling the importance of teamwork and most importantly, having fun.”

The Benefits of Attending OKC Youth Basketball Camp

All other camps this summer have sold out, and for good reason. With the goal to provide every Thunder Youth Basketball camper with quality instruction from Thunder-certified youth basketball coaches, campers will practice under the instruction of developmentally appropriate drills and customized lessons. The Thunder coaches strive toward a focus on defined fundamentals: instilling the importance of working together, creating a positive learning environment and increasing campers’ self-confidence to encourage hard work, focus and persistence. They’ll also encourage a little friendly competition to keep up engagement with campers and promote teamwork.

The team continually looks to inspire a love for the game that creates motivation for continual play among youth. In fact, Since its 2008-09 inception, the institution has generated more than 4,000 young basketball fanatics.
