Learning the game they love

Basketball camp readies girls for league, school games

The Haverhill Gazette

---- — These girls learned the basic and the finer points of the game they love — and from female players they admire.

The Haverhill YMCA had its Girls Basketball Camp last week. The camp was for girls who love basketball or who are interested in getting involved in the game. Local girls basketball coaches Michelle Joubert, Beth Eddy, Shawna Mottram and Elizabeth Briggs instructed participants in the fundamentals of the game — dribbling, shooting and passing — along with providing players with a solid understanding of the game.

The camp provided the girls a way to get ready for the Haverhill YMCA’s Girls Basketball League this fall, as well as develop their skills for their school teams.
