Pacific Lutheran University Lutes Girl’s Basketball Camp

The women’s basketball coaching staff strives to develop a strong connection with the young players of our community. Our coaches and players promote girls basketball as a fun and rewarding experience that can lead to healthy lifestyle habits. Our primary goal of this camp is to inspire young women to continue improving their basketball skills while applying their personal best on the court of life.

Individual campers, school teams, and club teams are all encouraged to attend. We focus on the development of individual fundamental skills, as well as an understanding of basketball strategies, through drills and scrimmage settings similar to those practiced by our college student-athletes.
