The McHenry County College Department of Athletics is sponsoring the 13th annual ScotStars Summer Sports Camps featuring basketball and soccer.
The basketball all-skills camps and a specialty shooting camp takes place Monday through Thursday, June 16 through 19. The camp features an all-skills camp for boys and girls entering second through fourth grades from 9 to 11:15 a.m., a specialty shooting camp for students entering second through eighth grades from 11:30 to 1 p.m.; and an all-skills camp for students in fifth through eighth grades from 1:15 to 3:30 p.m.
The camps are coordinated and taught by members of the MCC basketball coaching staff. ScotStars camps are held in the newly-renovated and air-conditioned MCC Tartan Gym in Building, A, located at 8900 U.S. Hwy. 14 in Crystal Lake.
Participants will receive an MCC ScotStars camp T-shirt, a group photo and a certificate of completion, all included in the registration fee. Campers will be grouped by age and/or ability whenever feasible. The camp provides instruction as well as valuable evaluation and review. Participants will learn age-appropriate skills, mental aspects, strategy, improve self-confidence, ability and enjoyment, make new friends and appreciate the positive aspects of basketball, under the guidance of college coaches, all in a quality collegiate environment, that's educational, affordable and close to home.
Parents and campers should arrive 15 to 20 minutes early on the first day of camp (Monday, June 16) to receive orientation information and to fill out a required parental waiver form.
The ScotStars soccer camps offered July 14 to 17 and July 21 to 24 feature all-skills soccer camps and soccer specialty striker and goalkeeping for boys and girls, respectively.
Cost for each all-skills camp and each soccer specialty camp is $59 for the week; $39 for the basketball specialty shooting camps, which run back-to-back with the all-skills camps during the same week. Cost is $98 for both basketball camp opportunities (all-skills and specialty shooting).
