WASHINGTON - The Gallaudet University women's basketball program will participate in the 8th annual National Deaf Girls Basketball camp on July 27-31 at the Maryland School for the Deaf in Frederick, Md.
The camp will be open to girls basketball players in grades 5th through 12th; all skill levels are welcomed. The cost for the camp is $300. The camp is a residential/overnight camp. Each participant gets a t-shirt and shorts.
This 'first-class' camp is all about providing continuous mentorship/role models for deaf female athletes as well as developing opportunities for young student-athletes on and off the court. The National Deaf Girls Basketball Camp is the only basketball camp for deaf females that provides direct communication amongst coaches and fellow campers while creating an unforgettable experience that cannot be found anywhere else. The campers will also attend a WNBA game in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday, July 30, at 7 p.m. as the Washington Mystics host the Phoenix Mercury.
