Decatur to host Gator Advanced Basketball Camp

Decatur’s basketball camp will be held July 18-19.

The Gator Dome welcomes your camper this summer.

Decatur High School boys basketball will host a two-day basketball camp on July 18-19 for girls and boys in third through eighth grades.

The Gator Advanced Basketball Camp will give young players hands-on basketball skill development and the opportunity to learn and play with the Decatur boys basketball team.

Skills at camp will focus on drills, dribbling and fundamental development. Each day caps off with a scrimmage to put these new skills to work and showcase what each participant has learned.

Leading the camp is Decatur boys basketball head coach Jeffery Forbes.

Forbes said he is committed to developing young players in the Federal Way area by teaching not only basketball skills, but also team building and leadership.

Camp price is $75 per person. Each attendee will receive a Gator T-shirt. Bring water and snacks, and wear athletic shoes.

The camp runs 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 18-19 at Decatur High School, 2800 SW 320th St., Federal Way. Register in person.
