Girls Development Camps

East Ridge Basketball Families,

 

My name is Ashley Ellis-Milan, and I am the Head Girls Basketball Coach at East Ridge High School. My staff and I are so excited to be able to host a youth summer camp at East Ridge High School. Connecting with our youth was hindered this past year however, we want to be able to provide high energy, fun, and engaging environment this summer for our youth. Below are the descriptions for both sessions and all campers will receive a camp t-shirt.

Registration is currently open and we can’t wait to meet our future RAPTORS!

The East Ridge Girls Basketball staff will engage each player and challenge them to be their best self while having fun and getting better.

East Ridge Basketball,

 

It was great to see so many of you on the live ball handling zoom meeting last week! We had a total of 94 families join from our community! If you weren’t able to make the live event, we have recorded the workouts and created an ‘On Demand’ page on our website where you will be able to access the recordings at any time.

 

We hope to see you all tonight!

AT HOME BASKETBALL SKILL RESOURCES

As we're all quarantined we thought parents might appreciate some guidance on basketball relevant workouts.  The ERHS varsity program has compiled some really helpful resources on the webpage below.  It includes a Google Doc that the varsity coaches compiled, body weight workouts the strength and conditioning coach put together and also some helpful websites with approved trainers where they can find a cheap paid service ($5.85/mo) and another offering 2 weekly free live training opportunities.
