Application Period Open For Basketball Camps
South River EMC, as well as North Carolina’s Touchstone Energy cooperatives, are once again partnering with North Carolina State University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill to offer educational and athletic opportunities for rising sixth through eighth graders.
Middle school students statewide are encouraged to apply for 52 all-expense paid scholarships to attend basketball camp. South River EMC offers one scholarship for the boys Roy Williams camp at UNC and girls Wolfpack Women's camp at NCSU.
Recipients of the Touchstone Energy Wolfpack Women's Basketball Camp scholarship attended the overnight camp in Raleigh from June 14-17. Recipients of the Touchstone Energy Roy Williams Basketball Camp scholarship attended the overnight camp in Chapel Hill from June 20-24. Campers must have permission from a parent or guardian to attend camp and must provide their own transportation to and from the camp.
Wes Moore, coach of the Wolfpack women’s basketball team, and Roy Williams, coach of the 2009 national champion Carolina Tar Heel men’s basketball team, will each instruct campers with the help of staff and current players. Not only does the program allow North Carolina middle school students to spend time on a college campus, it also gives them the opportunity to receive individual and group instruction from two successful collegiate coaches to enhance their basketball skills.
