The Whitman-Hanson boys' basketball program will once again be running its annual Future Stars basketball program during February vacation for boys in grades 1-8. This two day basketball experience is always one of the highlights of the year for youngsters from Whitman and Hanson.
On Monday February 16th, campers arrive at 9am and have camp until 2:30pm. During this time, the campers will receive instruction, participate in various drills and play lots of games. Our younger campers in grades 1-3 will break up the day, by watching a movie. On Tuesday February 17th, campers will arrive at noon and participate in basketball activities until about 4:30pm. At this time, the campers will go into the cafeteria for a pizza dinner (included in the price of the camp). Following the dinner, the campers will all watch a movie in the PAC and watch the varsity basketball team in action. The campers will be chaperoned by our sub varsity basketball teams and freshmen coaches. The order of these two activities is dependent on how the team does in the opening round of the tournament. It is our hope that the Panthers will be playing in the championship game like they have each of the past 6 years. However, regardless of the order of these events, the camp will get over at about 7:45pm (last year you may remember we had a double overtime thriller which we were fortunate to win. The extra periods resulted in an end time closer to 8:30pm).
The cost of the program is $100 if registered before February 6th. After that date, the cost is $125. Each camper will receive a tournament t-shirt and dinner as part of the tuition cost.
