Sharpsburg Family Worship Center will host a Hometown Hoops Mini-Camp where children can learn court skills from experienced players.

Sponsored by Allegheny County Parks Department, the event will be 10 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. July 26-27 at Kennedy Park along North Canal Street.

It is open to Lower Valley children ages 9-18. Proper basketball attire is required.

“Hometown Hoops is amazing,” Youth Minister Jamie Horne said.

“It is super-organized with great basketball players who really take time to invest in the kids and their skills.”

In case of weather that’s too hot or rainy, the camps will likely be inside the Linden Gym, also along North Canal Street.

Free lunch is provided at noon. Registration is required at least 24 hours in advance to be guaranteed a lunch.

The county hosts about 30 basketball mini-camps in 10 communities each summer.

To register, visit parkprograms or call 412-350-2455.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
