Tuesday was another overcast day with some occasional showers but it didn’t stop the campers from having a ball. After the usual early breakfast they were at the fields soon learning about the mental toughness lesson regarding having no expectations and keeping yourself level headed. Then we went over the rule of the day which was receiving fouls and also the principle of verticality. Next was some team time where each team did some zone drills and later in a scrimmage they put that knowledge to use. To cap off the morning session the campers were given their team jerseys and we took team photos.
After lunch were some good old fashioned distance and MTA competitions. We even had time to let the counselors compete against each other, and Jimmy Mickle made a statement with some incredible throws. Soon after that we began with the first round of the tournament play. The Pink and Gray teams had a close game that was exciting to watch. Afterwards the campers headed to Rec hour then dinner.
After dinner was a crazy scene as Trade Night began. Plenty of the counselors had nice jerseys etc… to trade and sell to the campers. There was excitement in the air for sure. Later there were team meetings and individual meetings where campers went over their progress so far one on one with a counselor.
The campers went to bed at 10:30 as usual and have tournament play all day tomorrow.
