2021 Summer Clinic Instructed by Elk River Girls Varsity Players

Who’s ready for a normal summer with normal kid activities? We sure are!

Once again the Varsity girls are offering a camp Friday mornings for youth basketball players.

This is a great camp to work on skills and make connections with the older girls who also grew up playing basketball. The camp is meant to be fun while focusing on some fundamental skills and although only once a week, the girls are sent home with homework to do on their own until the next session.

The camp will run starting June 11 through August 13 Friday mornings only at the High School Fieldhouse. (no session July 9)

8:00am-9:00am session (1st - 4th grade)
9:00am-10:00am session (5th - 8th grade)
10:00am-11:00am session (5th - 8th grade)

Please use the link provided here to register. Registration closes June 7th.

Cost per participant is $110 for the summer to be paid the first day of camp.

Details will follow once everyone is registered.

We look forward to seeing you!

Other Camps and Opportunities

Midwest 3 on 3

Midwest 3 on 3 is a league for the players. Kids need to enjoy the sport to want to improve. The league's key focus is FUN! This is an opportunity to develop basketball skills in a fun, low-stress environment. They encourage healthy competition in which kids play hard and play to win but not at the expense of belittling opponents, yelling at officials or displaying poor sportsmanship.

The leagues take place in many locations throughout the year, with opportunities in the Elk River area generally in the spring.

Timberwolves and Lynx Camps

Johnny Tauer's

Camps will take place at some of the state's finest basketball facilities:  University of St. Thomas' new Anderson Athletic and Recreation Complex, St. Thomas' McCarthy Gyms,  Macalester's brand new athletic complex, and the state of the art Colin Powell Center (Cristo Rey High School). We will also be holding half-day and beginner's camps at Nativity Grade School. We look forward to seeing you this summer!!
