Little Dribblers invade Trojan Arena

TROY, Ala. (TROJANVISION) — Some community members ranging from Pre-K to seventh grade have earned the distinction of being a “Little Dribbler.”

With the Trojans in the midst of their offseason plans, younger students around the country are beginning their offseason as well. That’s where the women basketball players step in.

Over a four-day period participants have the opportunity to have fun and learn both life and basketball skills from a thriving coaching staff.

“Everyday we have a theme of the day and today’s was just one that we use over and over in our program which is, shoot for the moon because even if you miss you might land among the stars,” said head coach Chanda Rigby. “We just try to instill what’s important to us and what works for us to make us a successful into the campers this week.”

For the coaching staff, these camps are bigger than basketball as events like these can become a tool to promote valuable life lessons.

“Instead of it just flowing into our team all the time, this is an opportunity to let it flow out and let the knowledge of basketball and our passion for the game flow out to the young people in our community,” Rigby told Trojanvision.

At the end of each camp day star campers are deemed “Big Leaguers of the Day” and sent home with a sweet treat.
