PULLMAN, Wash. – Nearly 100 boys and girls between the ages of six and 14 attended the Washington State University Men’s Basketball Day Camp on the Pullman campus, which began Monday, June 16 and wrapped up, Thursday, June 19.
The camp, which was held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m., daily, consisted of instruction by first year WSU head coach Ernie Kent, the WSU staff and student-athletes, group competitions and games. This year marked the third-straight year of nearly 100 campers, surpassing the 85 campers from 2011.
On the final day of camp, not only did the campers participate in the end-of-camp ceremony, but they got to each dump a cup of water on Kent as he competed in the Coldwater Challenge’s #Chillin4Charity. The Coldwater Challenge is an idea brought to life by the women’s basketball staff at Arizona which helps raise money for the Kay Yow foundation by having coaches and student-athletes have water dumped on them.
Basketball Day Camp is a mid-June tradition for Washington State men’s basketball. Information for next year’s camp will be available in early 2015 at www.wsucougars.com.
