Todd Beamer basketball to host first-ever youth Hoop Camp

Todd Beamer Green and Blue Hoop Camp will be held July 22-24 at Todd Beamer High School.

Champions on the basketball court are made in the off-season.

This summer, youth in Federal Way can hone their skills at the first Todd Beamer Green and Blue Hoop Camp at Todd Beamer High School.

The three-day camp is designed for students entering fourth grade through eighth grade to learn fundamental basketball skills such as ball handling, dribbling and shooting as well as individual and team defense techniques.

The camp will be led by Todd Beamer’s head boys basketball coach Brent Brilhante and associate head coach Collin Sawyer.

Brilhante is in his seventh year coaching at Todd Beamer High School, and has coached in the Federal Way Public Schools district for 16 years. Sawyer is in his tenth year coaching at TBHS, and has spent a total of 26 years coaching in the Auburn, Tacoma and Federal Way school districts.

“The coaches at Todd Beamer High School have seen an increased passion for basketball in our community,” Sawyer said. “We wanted to be able to assist in the growth and development of our student athletes.”

At camp, young hoopers will compete in friendly dribbling and shooting contests, along with other games because basketball is also about having fun, Sawyer said.

The camp registration costs $75 and includes a camp T-shirt and basketball, prizes and awards, and the opportunity to hear from guest speakers. Space is limited, so hopeful participants are encouraged to sign up before the price increases on July 5.

In addition to the head coaches, Hoop Camp will be led with assistance from the current Titan basketball student athletes, Sawyer said.

Todd Beamer Green and Blue Hoop Camp takes place from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. July 22-24 at Todd Beamer High School, 35999 16th Ave S. in Federal Way.
