It’s the basketball circle of life.

Help out with behind the scenes work at next summer’s Hoopaholics camp, and it will come back to benefit Coupeville basketball programs.

The camp, which brings numerous adult players to Whidbey Island, including U-Dub and NBA legend Steve Hawes, is in its 34th year of existence.

Participants stay at Camp Casey, with games held at the Coupeville High School gym during Father’s Day weekend June 16-18, 2023.

Volunteers are needed to help run the score board, do food prep, and set up.

Donations of cookies, snack mixes, and other homemade or store-bought goodies is also a priority.

Hoopaholics has a strong relationship with CHS basketball, and always makes a financial donation back to aid the Wolf hoops programs.

To volunteer, contact Amy Briscoe at (360) 632-2229.

It’s a sneak preview of what’s to come.

Coupeville Middle School students headed into grades 6-8 are invited to participate in a free running clinic which will give athletes and parents a feel for what the upcoming cross country season will look like.

There are actually two clinics available, with one going July 18-20 and the other July 22-23.

Each day’s events will begin at 8:30 AM, using a variety of locations.

The clinics begin at the school track behind Coupeville Elementary School and will conclude with a visit to Fort Casey to walk, then run the middle school cross country course.

“If you have a friend who you think might be interested, invite them to come!” said CMS cross country coach Elizabeth Bitting.

“Parents, grandparents, caregivers are welcome to join and walk/run/jog the same routes,” she added. “I hope to see you soon!”
