De Soto High School Lady Wildcats Basketball Camp

Coach Robie and his De Soto High School Girls’ Basketball staff would like to invite your daughter to attend their summer basketball camp from May 31st-June 3rd. The clinic is for all girls grades 1-12, with different session based on next year’s grade level (see flyer for times and groups).

The Lady Wildcats are coming off their first trip to the state tournament in 32 years and are excited to invite future basketball players to come grow and learn. Regardless of where your daughter is slated to go to high school, all girls are welcome to join us in growing the game of basketball!

Camp objectives will be to improve/teach the fundamentals of the game, provide structured opportunities to implement those skills in scrimmages and drills, and most of all foster a love for the game!

Labels for Education

Clear Creek families have been awesome sending in Labels for Education and we currently have 3000 points and would like to get another 3000 points by the end of the June. If we can collect 125 Labels for Education, we can turn them into 1250 points very easily. Clear Creek has the chance to do this bonus in both April and June, so that automatically can get us 2500 points! Each year, the points earned through Labels for Education are used to replenish recess balls for all grades and our goal would to be able to do that one more time this school year.

There is one more pick up for this school year! Our final pick up for the year is on May 13th so keep clipping and sending in those valuable little box tops and Labels for Education!
