Former Iowa State standout Lindsey Wilson will host a basketball camp for high school girls this August in Ames. It is the third year Wilson has conducted a camp which she says will focus on the individual skills players need to work on in the off-season. She says coaches at most levels don’t have a lot of time to do individual work during the season, so you have to develop in the off season.Wilson says it is common for young players to seek out summer leagues to play in but many times individual improvement suffers. She says just being in the gym isn’t enough. She says you need individual work over and over to get to a high level of basketball. Wilson limits her camp to about 30 players and says that allows more time for individual attention. She says building confidence on and off the court is a focus of her camp. Wilson says she doesn’t care if they go on to play college basketball, but she says sports are a good way to make them feel better about themselves. And she says if they want to go on and play college basketball, they will be ready. Wilson just returned from Greece where she played professionally this past season. The camp is august 26th through the 28th in Ames.
