CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Wyoming’s young basketball players have the chance to learn from the state’s biggest stars, as UW hosts their skills camp. Director of Basketball Operations Tim O’Flannigan helps to organize the event, and sees it as a good way to get young athletes involved with the program.

“As much as we would like to get around the state and get to each school and see everyone, we just can’t. Having them come here, especially with so many new faces on the team, meet the team, it’s unbelievable outreach for us,” said O’Flannigan.

Players and members of the coaching staff took over the Dome of Doom to train kids K-12 on the court. A big focus of the camp is teaching players drills that they can take home and continue to work on.

Kenny Foster has been involved with the camp for the entirety of his time as a Poke, and says it’s an experience he enjoys every year.

“I’ve been apart of Wyoming Basketball, just the state of Wyoming itself, this is gonna be my fifth year now. I love to see all the new kids, I love to just hang out with the little kids, get to know them, just kind of create new relationships with new people every time,” said Foster.

Registration for their overnight camp is still open. That camp will run from June 11-14.
