Pioneer youth basketball camp

The Mid Ohio Valley's basketball stars of tomorrow are learning the fundamentals of the game this week in Marietta.

More than 100 area athletes are at Marietta College's Pioneer basketball camp looking to hone their skills under the guidance of head men's basketball coach Jon VanderWal.

This is VanderWal's 13th year running the camp and it includes boys and girls in between 2nd and 5th grade.

Helping give advice to the young athletes are coaches and players in both the men's and women's Pioneers basketball programs.

It's a camp that means much to both coach VanderWal and the basketball players at Marietta College.
