ocs camps

Coaches and student-athletes across Oconee County are hard at work this summer.

For many of them, part of their time is being spent orchestrating and leading summer camps for the county’s younger and rising athletes. Several camps will be offered through the end of July.

The OCS-based camps kicked off two weeks ago with a girls basketball camp at North Oconee High School. That camp served girls from first grade through eighth grade and was led by NOHS girls basketball coach Erick Willis and several of his players.

At the same time, NOHS baseball coach Jay Lasley and some of the Titans led the first of two baseball camps. That camp welcomed in first graders through eighth graders.

Oconee County High School played host to a cheerleading camp that same week. It was open to 4-year-olds through 12-year-olds.
