After a two-year hiatus due to Covid, Coach Norb Baschnagel is once again hosting the “Fun with Fundamentals” Basketball Summer Day Camp.
Coach Baschnagal served as Assistant Men’s Basketball Coach at CUP, where one of his major responsibilities was recruiting. In three of his last four years as the head recruiter, Coach Baschnagel recruited an NCAA Division II Basketball All-American on the Clarion University Team: Reggie Wells (1979), Alvin Gibson (1981), and Joe Malis (1982).
He also recruited John Calipari who played point guard for Clarion University and is now Head Basketball Coach at the University of Kentucky. Coach Calipari’s Wildcats won the 2012 NCAA Division I National Championship. He is in the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.
Coach Baschnagel has spent 40+ Years of successful experience as a basketball player, master teacher, motivator, author, recruiter, and superior coach with a commitment to excellence. He has directed Fun with Fundamental Basketball Camps for 30+ Years (200+ Camps).
The camp is open to youngsters ages 8 to 14 and will be held at Joe’s Gym, which is located two miles east of Clarion on Route 322. The camp runs Monday, June 20th through Friday, June 24th, from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day.
The total cost for the camp is $150.00 which includes 18 hours of instruction and Dry-fit camp T-shirt.
Enrollment will be limited to the first 40 paid applicants for our camp. To reserve a spot at the camp or if you have any questions, please call Coach Baschnagel at 814-226-5098 or e-mail him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coach Baschnagel stated:
“Our basketball camps are different than any other basketball camps that you might attend because the most important thing we teach you at our camps is ‘Sportsmanship’. My philosophy of life is based on four words ‘Give Me your Best’. Sportsmanship is a key element to a successful life and should be strived for in everything that you do.
There will be an Awards Ceremony at the conclusion of the camp. All parents and guests are invited to attend.
