Dalhart High hosts youth basketball camp next week

Dalhart High School normally conducts a number of youth camps for various sports during the summer, but many of those camps had to be canceled this summer due to turnover in the coaching ranks and due to other reasons as well. A few camps have taken place though, and one more will be held next week in the final week before two-a-day practices begin for football and volleyball.

Head Coach Anthony Catherall and his staff conducted a girls’ youth basketball camp in June, and Joe Garcia held a pole vault camp at the end of June as well. Dalhart Junior High hosted a volleyball skills camp that was conducted by the head volleyball coach at Decatur High School, Catherine Foerster, and her assistant coach Lauren Beville. Dalhart High’s head volleyball coach Kira Satterfield and staff, along with 2020 Class 3A All-State player and DHS graduate Bethany Berngen, conducted the Lady Wolves’ annual volleyball camp last week.

Dalhart High’s new boys’ basketball coach Ruben Lopez will conduct the Golden Wolves basketball camp next week, from Monday June 26-Thursday June 29. It will actually be open to both boys and girls who will be in first grade-eighth grade during the upcoming school year. The camp will be from 9-11 a.m. each day, and will cost $50 per camper. 

The campers will work on basic basketball skills during the camp. These include shooting, ball-handling, defense, individual moves on offense, rebounding, footwork, and both passing and receiving passes. Conditioning will also be emphasized during the camp.

Anyone interested in the camp or who would like additional information can contact Lopez by email at ruben.lopez@dalhartisd. org or at (915) 315-8108.
