WC announces summer athletic camps


Because, you never know where the next superstar athlete is coming from.

The Weatherford College basketball teams will host their first camp in recent memory June 10-13.

"It'll help promote our program to the local schools," WC Athletic Director and Head Women’s Basketball Coach Bob McKinley said. "They've got a lot of kids signed up already.

"I think it's great for the kids, our program, and our school."

The co-ed camp will be instructed by Lady Coyotes Assistant Coach Brittnie Haley and Coyotes Assistant Coach Chris Lewis. There will be two sessions, a fundamentals camp from 9-11:30 a.m. for youngsters entering kindergarten-sixth grade, and a player development camp from 1-4 p.m. for players entering grades 7-12.

The fundamentals camp will have registration from 8:30-9 a.m. on the opening day, while the player development camp will have registration from 12:30-1 p.m.

Cost for the camp is $60 if paid by May 31 or $75 after. To pay in advance, send to Haley at Weatherford College, 225 College Park Dr., Weatherford, Texas, 76086. Registration can also be done online, with an extra $2 fee, at wc.edu/coyotes-basketball camp.

All participants will receive a WC camp shirt and various awards will be given on the final day.

"It's a lot of fundamentals, and you give them some things they can take home and do," McKinley said. "That's what camps do, they give you the right way to do things. The ones who go home and work on things are the ones who have a chance to make themselves better players."

BASEBALL EVALUATION CAMP
The Coyotes will hold an evaluation camp on Monday, June 3. Registration is 10:30 a.m. for pitchers and catchers and 1 p.m. for position players.

This showcase is an opportunity for players graduating high school in 2019, 2020 and 2021 to participate in a "pro-style" event. Players will be evaluated in the following areas: 60-yard dash, hitting, pitching and defense, and all evaluations will be made available to players.

Cost is $80 on the day of the camp, or pre-registration can be done by emailing Assistant Coach David Walden at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Pitching Coach David Walden brings a wealth of experience from all levels of baseball including 30-plus years of coaching.
