Harker’s summer basketball program is an ideal opportunity for boys in grades 5-8 and girls in grades 5-9 to develop their skills on the court in a fun, nurturing atmosphere. Students will work on fundamental defense and offense, shooting, rebounding, ball handling and more from Harker’s experienced coaches. Team strategy, fitness and endurance will also be incorporated for a well-rounded program that emphasizes teamwork and individual growth as well as basketball skills.
Boys coach Butch Keller, who serves as Harker’s upper school division head, has been coaching basketball for 25 years, winning 19 conference or league championships, in addition to winning numerous awards and achieving an overall record of 511-137. Most recently, he led the boys to a historical break into the upper brackets of CCS playoffs. Coaching the girls will be Alfredo Alves, who last year led the Harker girls varsity team to 20 wins and the first playoff win in Harker girls basketball history.
This program will be held at Harker’s middle school campus, and all students will receive a ball and a camp T-shirt. The boys program runs from June 25-30, and the girls program runs from July 9-13. Previous organized basketball experience is preferred. Visit Harker Summer Sports pages to find more information and register for this program.
