The next session of the Josh Oglesby Basketball Camps will begin on Sunday, Jan. 17 at the Hennessey Recreation Center at Mount Mercy University.
The session will last for four weeks, running each Sunday through Feb. 7. Players in grades 3, 4 and 5 will attend from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. each Sunday, with players in grades 6, 7 and 8 attending from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m. each Sunday.
The cost is $150 for all four sessions, but players may attend fewer sessions for a lesser amount. Payments should be made at the door prior to the session by check or cash. Checks can be made out to Josh Oglesby.
Each player is asked to bring a basketball to camp.
Oglesby played at Cedar Rapids Washington and the University of Iowa. Sam Elgin, who played at Upper Iowa University, is also running the camp. Oglesby is currently a volunteer assistant at Mount Mercy and Elgin coaches teams at Marion High School and Wilson Middle School.
The camp will stress ballhandling, shooting, footwork, defense and basketball IQ.
