LOCAL SPORTS ROUNDUP

BENNINGTON -- Southern Vermont College coaches and players will lead two athletics camps on campus this summer.

First-year men’s basketball head coach Dan Engelstad will lead two separate sessions of the 2013 Mountaineer boys’ & girls’ basketball camp. The first will take place between July 29 and Aug. 2, with the second session following Aug. 5 to 9. Both take place in the Mountaineer Athletic Center.

Boys and girls entering grades 3-11 can sign up for either week. The cost is $200 for one session or $375 for both. Individual participation and instruction in all phases of skill development and team play will be maximized. All participants will receive a camp t-shirt and a personalized evaluation from camp staff.

Mountaineer Baseball will once again hold its annual summer camp on Bill Epstein Field from Aug. 5 to 8. All days of the camp will be held outside and in the event of rain, Aug. 9 will be utilized for a make-up day. The morning session, from 9 to 11 a.m., is open to children between kindergarten and sixth grade, while those going into grades 7-12 will go in the afternoon from 12 to 2 p.m. College-level expert instruction will be led by second-year baseball head coach Dave Gage with the assistance of Mountaineer baseball players. The cost is $65 per player.
