Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara Hosting Inaugural Clippers Youth Hoops Camp

The Boys & Girls Club of Santa Barbara has entered into its first year partnership with the Los Angeles Clippers Youth Hoops program to host its inaugural Clippers Youth Hoops Camp.

The Boys & Girls Club has a long tradition of servicing the youth of Santa Barbara by providing quality recreational space where youth basketball players can gather together to enjoy. Now, in its first season of partnership with Clippers Youth Hoops, the Boys & Girls Club will be creating even more opportunities for young hoopsters to learn hands-on, professional training and professionalism that is the “Clipper Way.”

The weeklong camp combines skill development stations with competition to provide a fun and instructive basketball experience. In addition, participants will be taught basic offense/defense plays that are actually performed by the Los Angeles Clippers.

The Boys & Girls Club will kick off its Los Angeles Clippers Youth Hoops Camp next week, July 14-18, to give kids a chance to develop fundamental basketball skills and learn some tricks of the trade. Boys and girls ages 6 to 16 are welcome, and camp runs Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 2:30 p.m.

Tuition cost is $265. Participants will receive expert instruction, engage in team and individual competition and go home with a basketball, one ticket to a Clippers home game for the upcoming season, and other fun gifts and prizes!

For more information on how to register or for opportunities on how you can sponsor a youth, contact Darnell Campbell at dcampbell@thebasketballacademy.com or click here.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
