Excitement with Ellyssa - Basketball Camp 2010

Lyssa decided she wanted to go to basketball camp this year and of course this made her daddy very proud. I had honestly never watched a basketball game in my life until she started playing. So, I would have to say basketball is definitely something she and her dad share, I am just on the sidelines cheering. I have to admit, I love watching her eagerly learning from him, and I know they both really enjoy it.


Camp was from Monday, July 26 through Thursday, July 29 from 6 pm to 9 pm. Benji and I both stayed the whole time and watched on Monday night, but I couldn't sit there the rest of the week, plus we thought she would learn more if she wasn't trying to show off for us. Benji watched Tuesday night from about 7:30 pm to 9 pm, and neither one of us watched her Wednesday night. We both stayed the entire time Thursday night as this was the last night and their pizza party.

She learned different dribbling techniques, some I had never heard of, like "the spider" but it seems to be the most difficult for her age, but yet it's the one she continues to ask her daddy to practice with her. They also worked on passing and free throws, as well as having one on one games. Her first one on one she was matched up against a boy and she almost beat him. It was great to watch her grow from that first night to the last night, she had many improvements. I do believe she will have a much better year at basketball this year, and this will be her 4th year to play.
