Women's Basketball Team Concludes Successful Week of Nike Camp

(Fairfield, CT) – Sacred Heart University Women's Basketball Head Coach Ed Swanson, his coaching staff, and several Pioneer players are wrapping up another successful Nike Girls Basketball Camp at the Pitt Center this week.

"It was a great week of camp," said Swanson. "Our players and coaches did a great job giving the campers quality instruction and the campers all had great energy all week and were a pleasure to work with.  Hopefully we gave them the tools to go home and get better."

The campers broke down into small groups for specialized instruction from SHU players and coaches, working on everything from pivoting, dribbling, shooting, and overall team play.

The campers ranged in age from 8 to 16, and came from as nearby as Fairfield and Bridgeport to as far away as Italy. More than 300 girls basketball players participated in camp with the defending NEC champion Sacred Heart Pioneer Women's Basketball team, with about 150 staying overnight.
