N Zone Sports Will Hold Basketball Camp At Camp Christina

N Zone Sports will hold a basketball camp on Saturdays, July 14, 21 and 28, held at YMCA Camp Christina in Riverview.

Due to the success of past years’ summer basketball programs, N Zone Sports will once again hold a basketball camp at YMCA Camp Christina in July.

N Zone Sports is a national youth sports program that began in Hillsborough County. The organization’s philosophy includes combining the best elements and values of sports and ensuring that each child has a positive experience playing a sport that he or she loves.

“Our commitment to the families and communities we serve is simple: to provide a safe environment for kids to have fun playing the sport they love. Our goal is to change this experience, making each season a memorable, life-shaping event for your child,” said Denise Westbrock, who co-owns N Zone Sports along with her husband, Tony, and partners Rick and Coleen Mercilliott.

Westbrock continued, “We’ve received a terrific response to our summer basketball program and plan on having a great turnout. Space is filling fast. If you decide to register, please do so as soon as possible to avoid being placed on a wait list.”

N Zone Sports’ Basketball Camp is a well-organized program that emphasizes the teaching of fundamentals, teamwork, good sportsmanship and fun. The camp, run over a three week time period in July, combines age specific instruction and activities as well as participation in games. Since the program is completely recreational, all of the campers are involved the entire time.

The camp will run on Saturdays, July 14, 21 and 28, from 9 a.m.-12 Noon at the YMCA Camp Christina in Riverview. Each camper will be provided with an official N Zone Sports player jersey, which are to be worn during camp time and can be kept once the camp is over. 

Each Saturday campers will participate in a half-hour skill building session designed to help players improve their hand-eye and foot-eye coordination as well as their overall basketball skills. The rest of the time at camp will be spent on organized scrimmage games. At the end of the camp, the kids will be rewarded with a medal for demonstrating values like hard work, effort and sportsmanship.

YMCA Camp Christina is located at 9840 Balm Riverview Rd. in Riverview. To register for camp, visit www.nzonesports.com/summerfield/registraion
