Over the weekend, several Blue Blazer basketball and volleyball players got a look at what their coaches see each day. The volleyball team split up Friday to help at elementary practices throughout the district. Then Saturday morning, the boys basketball team hosted a camp for 25 elementary students.
Terry Smith, new Elkhart Central boys basketball coach, said he was delighted to see his boys coach the young athletes. “It gives them a chance to see a practice through the coach’s eyes,” said Smith. “Our boys did a great job connecting with the kids all morning.”
Future Blazer volleyball players got to learn from their role models. Coach Loni Stahl hopes the practices will encourage girls to come to camps in the off-season and attend high school volleyball games for years to come.
