Youth camps bring skills and confidence to young athletes

LUSK – Student athletes from third to eighth grade ran, hit, blocked, threw and listened…a lot… throughout the two day football camp at the NCHS football field while other athletes ran, jumped, bumped and set their way through the days in the gymnasium. 

Sally Powers Nichols, a former college volleyball coach and her assistants Lily Nichols and Desirae Iacovetto helped girls hone their basics and learn more about the methods and techniques used in volleyball.

Visiting Coaches Brendan Hopkins, Kristian Grabb, Roy Garris, D’mauria Martin and Sam McKinley used humor and heart to work third through eighth graders through football drills and knowledge. The football players learned different skills depending on position and rotated through different stations. Coach Sam McKinley from Colorado Springs, CO stated, “I love doing this kind of stuff. It was my pleasure to be able to come up and work with this young athletes.”

The camps were open to any kids from third to eighth grade. They were supported by the Lusk Recreational Department. Participants also received a T-shirt following the camps. 

The NWBA Basketball camps will also be offered this year through the Lusk Recreation Department. Those camps will run June 28-29. Youth entering second grade through sixth grade are eligible for participation and parents need to contact the Lusk City Hall for forms and information.
