MILLEDGEVILLE, Ga. – Has your youngster ever dreamed about playing basketball with top level collegiate athletes? Well here is his or her chance to be a part of the Big Show as the Georgia College & State University women’s basketball team invites local youth to the first season of the Junior Bobcat Basketball League (JBBL).

The camp will run Sundays starting Sept. 12 and finish Oct. 17 from 2:30-5 p.m. in Georgia College’s Centennial Center.

The JBBL’s main focus is to learn the fundamentals of the game, have a positive experience and develop an interest for the game of basketball. The kids will enjoy 5-v-5 games against kids of their own age group and be coached by players from the Bobcat women’s basketball team. Stay up to date with newsletters mailed each week highlighting stats and numerous weekly awards.

For $85, participants will enjoy a JBBL T-shirt, a 5-v-5 game during halftime of a Bobcat basketball game (Games TBD), a pizza party following a Bobcat basketball game, a complementary pass to a basketball game and other great gifts.
