Hometown Hoops Mini-Camps coming to Sharpsburg
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.
