For Jones County head basketball coach Jay Ladner, today's shooting clinic at the A.B. Howard Gymnasium can only be described as a success.
"There's been a lot of smiles, we've got a great turnout of parents just to watch," said Ladner.
"It's been an overwhelming success and I'm very thankful to the community at large and the support they've given to the camp."
Close to 40 campers came out to learn the finer points of a jump shot, something that Ladner believes is key in a players development.
"It's crucial at a young age in basketball. A lot of times a young kid will pick a basketball up and if they're not given proper instruction they literally will shoot the basketball in a way that it feels like to shoot it.
"They end up throwing the basketball up there. So therefore they don't have a lot of success."
In just a few short hours, campers already saw the benefits of Ladner's teachings.
"I learned when you first get the ball and turn around and face up. Don't just get the ball and go off with it," 9th grade Trey McGilberry said.
Fellow 9th grader Madison Thornton saw improvement in her jump shot as well.
"I've sort of applied the stuff that he taught me for my shot and I've been making more shots."
But besides gaining skills on the court, having a great time playing basketball wasn't bad either.
"I've made some new friends and I've met some people that I used to know when I was little and I'm just having a really good time," Thornton said towards the end of the day.
Coach Ladner had a positive outlook on what the future holds.
"We even hope for bigger and better things next year. If we can get 40 this year I hope we'll have 80 next year."
