Registration is still being taken for the annual McPherson Bullpup Basketball Camps.

Two sessions are scheduled this year, June 2-5 and June 23-26. They will be held at McPherson High School, both in the Roundhouse and Auxiliary Gym.

 “Our goals are three-fold,” MHS coach and camp director Kurt Kinnamon said. “Number one, have fun. Number two, be safe. Number three, learn how to do things the right way and give players instruction that they can work on at home.”

Helping Kinnamon will be members of his coaching staff, as well as former Bullpup players.

Session features include:

– Talks and instruction by former Bullpup players.

– Fundamental skills stations.

— Games and contests where everyone is a winner. All campers will receive a prize.

— 8-foot goals for the younger players.

— Use of the gun shooting machine.

Here are the times for the sessions with the grades being for the 2014-15 school year:

— Boys Grades K-2 and Girls K-1 — 8:30-9:30 a.m. (McPherson girls except K,1 may only attend second session).

— Boys Grades 3-5, Girls grades 4-6 — 9:30-10:45 a.m.

— Boys Grades 6-8, girls 7-8 — 10:45 to noon.

It should be noted the seventh- and eighth-grade boys will be learning the offenses and defenses that will be used at the middle-school level.

Cost for the camp, which includes a T-shirt:

One session — $55 for one camper, $80 for two campers, id="mce_marker"00 for three campers.

Both sessions — $80 for one camper, id="mce_marker"10 for two campers, id="mce_marker"25 for three campers.
