Today is the final day to sign up for one of the two annual week-long Eagles Hoop Camps at Barrington High School.
The camps are run by Barrington High boys’ coach Patrick Sullivan and girls’ coach Stephen Lenz. Dates of the camps are June 25-29 and July 9-13.
The camps are open to boys and girls ages 9 to 15. You can attend both camps although each one is limited to 60 players.
Cost of the camp is $220 per week. It includes lunch, a T-shirt and a ball. You can attend both weeks for a special rate of $390.
Camp hours are 9 am to 3 pm Monday through Thursday and 9 am to 1 pm on Friday. Gym doors will open at 8:45 am.
The camp was created “to provide boys and girls with a fun and supportive environment in which they can unlock their potential basketball abilities,” according to a flyer circulated by Sullivan and Lenz.
“The summer months are a great opportunity for players to work on their individual game,” they said.
Lenz has coached for 13 years. He has led the girls’ team to two Division II state championships and the semi-finals and quarter-finals of the Division I tournament in that time period. He was Division I coach of the year in 2010-11.
Sullivan has coached for 4 years. He has led the boys’ team to Division II quarter-final and semi-final appearances in 2010 and 2011, and a playoff berth in three straight years.
