Have Ball Will Travel Basketball Camp Brings Energy to Area Ballers

Nearly 100 basketball players from Eads, Wiley, McClave, Kit Carson, and as far away as Oklahoma, took part in the four-day Triple Threat Basketball Camp in Eads led by former college and professional stand out Coach Kevin Washington.  Washington is now part of the Have Ball Will Travel basketball camps and also represents Under Armor.  Some of the campers at the Triple Threat basketball camp in grades 1-5 during the recent basketball camp in Eads.

Throughout the four days Washington brought his high energy, fun personality, and basketball expertise to players as young as first grade clear through high school.

“I truly love what I do,” stated Washington.  “This Eads camp is showing me that the future is going to be extremely bright for area basketball teams.” 

Throughout the four days the basic foundational basketball skills were taught by Washington.  Once the skills were understood, Washington’s method required the kids to use the skill in healthy competitions.  The young players learned about the fundamentals of dribbling, ball-handling, passing, shooting, and team work. 

Washington always emphasized team work and making sure to encourage each other throughout the four days.

At the end of the camp the players each received individual evaluations from Washington that will allow parents or coaches to proceed to develop just what their players need to move forward in their game. 

Coach Washington is currently stationed in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma but is looking to make a move to Colorado where most of his individual and team camps are located.
