CLARKSDALE – Legendary basketball coach Ella Morris has set dates for her annual Lil’ Tigers Basketball Camp at Coahoma Community College: June 17-21 from 9 a.m. to noon daily for boys and girls in grades 1-8.

With 31 years of teaching and coaching experience, Morris promises the same first class instruction teaching basketball fundamentals, individual and team play that produced years of championship teams at CCC.

“The goal of our camp is to offer the camper maximum instruction for the minimum cost under ideal learning condition,” says Morris, who is retired from coaching. She was inducted in the first Mississippi Community and Junior College Sports Hall of Fame.

Campers will receive a camp t-shirt, certificate of attendance, game skills evaluation, competition and other incentive awards given on the last day of camp.

The competitions include free throw, 3-point, and 3-on-3. First and second places will receive medals and third place winners will receive certificates.

Tuition for the camp is $50, and registration with fee may be completed from 9 – 11 a.m. Friday, June 14, in the Pinnacle on CCC’s campus or mailed to Morris at P.O. Box 541, Metcalfe, Miss. 38760.

For additional information, contact Morris at 662-378-7304 or Carol Brooks, CCC athletic secretary at 662-621-4223. Registration applications also may be picked up at the Pinnacle.
