The hardwood calls.

The Coupeville Youth Basketball Association is offering a two-day skills camp later this month for children entering grades K-6.

The camp, which runs June 21-22 at the high school gym, will give young players a chance to “improve your dribbling, shooting, passing, teamwork, and defensive skills, along with some fun competitions!”

Cost is $20 and the event is open to Coupeville School District students.

Each day will run from 9-11:30 AM, and you need to register by June 12 to ensure getting a camp t-shirt.

Payment is due the first day of camp.

Never stop working.

Success in volleyball, like any sport, comes with work put in on the court — in season and out.

With that in mind, Coupeville High School spiker coaches are gearing up for their annual in-house skills camps.

The sessions are split between incoming students in K-6 and grades 7-12.

The younger players go June 4-5, with the older stars on the floor June 13-16.

Elementary school students will be in action from 9 AM to noon, with middle and high school players going from 4-6 PM.

Cost is $20 and $30, respectively, and each player who registers by May 20 will receive a camp t-shirt.

A new season of Central Whidbey Little League action approaches. (Jackie Saia photo)

Spring approaches, but little league action will probably beat it in getting here.

Central Whidbey Little League hosts its second, and final, skills and registration camp this coming Saturday, February 22 from 10 AM-noon at the CHS gym.

The event is open to children ages 5-15 who live in Central Whidbey (Coupeville and Greenbank), and includes all age groups (T-Ball, baseball, and fastpitch softball).

Parents are encouraged to register their children at the league’s site — https://www.centralwhidbeylittleleague.com/ — or at the skills camp.

For Saturday’s event, players are asked to wear athletic clothing and “good gym shoes.”

It’s recommended they bring their baseball and softball gear, if they have it, though some will be provided for those in need.

The league also hosts its annual field work party Mar. 14, a time when the ball fields at Rhododendron Park (502 W. Patmore Rd.) will be primed for play.

Volunteers are welcome and needed.

The past, present, and future of Coupeville basketball mingles.

The future Brad Sherman’s of Wolf basketball got to pick up a few lessons from the old-school version.

The Coupeville High School boys basketball coach, and legendary former player, joined up with fellow hoops coaches Thursday and Friday to run a successful skills camp for Coupeville athletes in grades K-8.

The two-day affair drew 75+ basketball players, split between girls and boys.

Sherman was joined by fellow coaches Scott Fox, Chris Smith, Megan Smith, Randy King, Greg White, and Randy Bottorff, as well as current CHS players.

Players were divided into four groups (K-1, 2-3, 4-6, and 7-8) and were offered a great learning opportunity in a fun environment.

As Coupeville coaches build local basketball programs to be strong from top to bottom, the skills camp is a welcome flashback to the sort of events held when Sherman, Megan Smith, and White were young players themselves.
