CIRCLEVILLE, OH - This past week, Ohio Christian University had the unique opportunity to host one of the many Cleveland Cavaliers Basketball Camps located across Ohio this summer. The ability to host this event was an amazing opportunity for Trailblazer Athletics, especially following the Cavaliers magical season which concluded with an NBA Championship, ending the city of Cleveland's record drought without a championship team. To add to that, this was also an opportunity to bring kids on the campus and show them the love of Christ through athletics.
Overall, the camp brought 30 kids ranging from ages 7-16 into the Maxwell Center throughout the week to learn from former Ohio State Buckeye and OCU men's basketball coach Tony Stockman. The week consisted of skill development and the basics of basketball, such as passing, defense, rebounding, and shooting. On top of the skill sessions, kids were able to enjoy some fun competition with each other through games of 3 on 3 and knockout.
At the end of the camp, all participants received a ticket to a future Cavaliers' game in Cleveland, a Cavaliers' t-shirt, and a Cavaliers' Camp basketball. "It's great being able to host the Cavs camp. Getting to team up with them, it's not only great for our program but the whole university," said Coach Stockman.
