Nolan sees strong support in Zebra camp attendance

CLAREMORE — The future of Claremore Zebra basketball is moving in the right direction according to third-year head coach Tommy Nolan.

More than 70 campers — ranging from kindergarten to ninth grade — attended Coach Nolan’s basketball camp last week at the Claremore High School Gymnasium.

“We had a great turnout and it was unreal the support we had from Claremore and the surrounding communities,” Nolan said. “It’s definitely a huge step in building a foundation.”

Nolan and his coaching staff — Wes Coleman, Dave Winton and Mike Larimer — taught campers the fundamentals of ball-handling, passing, shooting, sportsmanship and having fun as a team.

Also, all 25 members of the high school basketball program was in attendance to help with drills.

The three-day camp, according to Nolan, had its highest participation between the sixth through the eighth grades.

“I was really impressed with the athletes in that group,” Nolan added. “The future looks good for Zebra basketball.”

As the camp concluded on the last day, Nolan handed out the following awards for groups (K-5th grade) and (6th-8th grade):
