Basketball Camp hosts dads and children for Father’s Day

It was a game of friendly competition between dads and their children at the Father’s Day Basketball Camp on June 15.

Participants spent the day practicing basic drills and engaging in some friendly games of 2-on-2. Participants were also shown the Kent State facilities, including the locker rooms and practice areas used by the Flashes basketball team.

Director of Basketball Operations Mike McKee helped to run the event with coach Rob Senderhoff and Assistant Coach Bobby Steinburg, along with members of the Kent State Basketball team.

“It was an afternoon for dads to bring theirs kids, have fun and enjoy themselves,” McKee said.

Seven fathers signed up with their children for the 5-hour event. In addition to an afternoon spent playing basketball, participants received dinner and a t-shirt. 

McKee said he is hoping to have even more participants next year with the intent that participants will share their experiences by word of mouth. 

This is the first time that Kent State Men’s Basketball Camps has hosted a camp for Father’s Day and hopes to make it an annual event.
