Putting the ‘fun? back in fundamentals

Young Cagers invaded the Clarkston High School gym last week.
They were there to learn the fundamentals of the game from Varsity Head Basketball Coach Dan Fife, his coaching staff and varsity players.
During the 11th annual Fife Fundamentals Basketball camp, boys entering grades four-six worked on passing, shooting and ball-handling.
‘We make playing fun,? said Fife.
Fife continued by saying he wanted the boys to have fun while playing the game, and not have to worry about the seriousness of it until later.
Fife said this week’s Dan Fife Basketball Camp for boys entering 7th-9th grade, will be more serious and have a lot more focus on skills needed to get onto the middle school and high school teams.
Before the campers said their goodbyes and thank yous to Fife and their coaches, Coach Fife left them with a few lasting thoughts.
‘It’s not what you learned this week. It’s about what you do with what you learn.?
Fife stressed to the boys the importance of listening to their teachers and parents and taking every opportunity to learn.
