Silver Lake College Presents March Madness Mini Basketball Camp on March 29

Posted on March 05 2014

Boys and girls in grades five through seven are invited to take part in Silver Lake College of the Holy Family’s March Madness Mini Basketball Camp on March 29.

The third annual event will be held at the Wilson Junior High School Gymnasium in Manitowoc to cheer on our Lakers players as they teach kids to “Shoot for Higher Education!” (Please note the gym has changed from Lincoln High School to Wilson Junior High School.) Children of all skill levels will get the chance to join Silver Lake College basketball players for a series of drills and technique-building exercises. The camp runs from 10 a.m. until noon, followed by lunch.

Game time is at 1:30 p.m. There will be halftime entertainment, music, concessions and raffles. Silver Lake College players will take part in the game as well — while wearing oversized boxing gloves to help level the playing field. Spectator admission to the game is $2 for adults and $1 for Silver Lake College students and children.

The cost to attend the camp is $12, which includes a T-shirt and lunch. Scholarships to the camp are available.

For more information about the scholarships or to register for the camp, contact Tara Wachowski, program coordinator for Look Ahead Lakers, at (920) 686-6208 or tara.wachowski@sl.edu. Please register by March 21.

Proceeds benefit the Look Ahead Lakers program, which inspires at-risk students to believe a college education is in their future.
