Head coach Will Anglin and the Dawson County girls basketball team hosted a youth camp from Monday, June 13, to Thursday, June 16.

Anglin has kickstarted his tenure as head coach with several events for his team, including a team camp at Georgia College, scrimmages at North Georgia and Suwanee Sports Academy, and the youth skills camp held at Rock Creek Park.

The youth camp included one-on-one and group activities, led by the staff and players of the Lady Tigers.

With all but one player returning from last season’s team, they all had a chance to show their leadership skills at the camp and strengthen the relationship between the high school team and the younger players. 

Throughout the camp, the coaching staff also helped organize and lead drills. These included new staff additions Nichole Green and Calli Watson, who worked with established coaches Natosha Beary and Carly Anglin.

With a combination of fundamental skill development and fun activities, the young participants all got a first look into a potential future as a Lady Tiger.

In addition to basketball skills, the participants also learned important life skills from the players and staff.

On the final day of camp the high school team had to leave early for a scrimmage, but the young players still got to take one last photo with their mentors.

Later on Thursday, the Lady Tigers played the first scrimmage game of what would become a busy weekend.

The team first traveled up to Dahlonega to play in an event hosted by North Georgia before taking a much longer trip over to Suwanee for a Georgia Basketball Coaches Association event

With college basketball coaches in attendance in Suwanee, the Tigers played multiple games over the weekend and displayed many different facets of their game.

These scrimmages will give Anglin an idea of the team’s cohesion as it looks to build off last season’s success and make another state playoff run.
