PCHS basketball camp starts June 10
June 7, 2013
Coming off a season in which the Park City High School boys’ basketball team generated a lot of buzz in the community, playing well at home and making the 3A playoffs, head coach Caleb Fine and the Miners’ coaching staff decided it was about time to extend their reach to the youth level.
So, beginning on Monday, the PCHS basketball team will be hosting a youth basketball camp in the PCHS gym.
"We need to really push youth involvement," he said. "And this is a good start. I’ve had the privilege of being the head coach for four years. Now my goal is to develop the youth program and the youth connection to the varsity team."
Fine said he hopes to instill key basketball values in the young players.
"It’s all about installing hard work and drilling the fundamentals while still having fun," he said.
And, with varsity players like Sam Kingdon, Adam Hutt, Tom Wood and Beau Story helping out, Fine said it will really benefit the participants.

"You want kids to grow up playing the game the right way," he said. "Getting this interaction with the coaching staff and varsity players is key. We’re really excited for the youth-athlete connection."
Fine said the ultimate goal is to see some of the camp participants return to the PCHS gymnasium in a few years as members of the Miners’ varsity team.
"When they’re juniors and seniors, we hope to see them out here helping the next generation of youth players in Park City," he said.
Registration for the camp opens on Monday morning at 8:30. Fine said he’s expecting a big turnout.
"We’re hoping to hit 100," he said. "That’s the goal for year one."
