V.6.1. Basketball Camp - Fort Lewis College
Description:  Our program is paying for this.  I don’t get any additional salary/pay.  We fundraised last fall for this, there is no cost for the school or district.  When I have pursued school transportation in the past, the cost has been significantly higher than doing it ourselves.  Also, some years I have been told the school does not provide summer sports transportation.  I’ve never been asked to provide this before.  There is 100% of "financial support" provided by our Boys Basketball Program and the affiliated Triple Threat Booster Club at no direct cost to the district.

  1. Transportation we are still working on.  Either we will rent 2 vehicles or use personal vehicles.  Drivers will be myself and 1 other coach or parent volunteer.  Gas and/or rental fees will be covered by the Triple Threat Booster Club.  I’m anticipating approximately $2500 between fuel and rental fees based on past years with additional fuel costs due to the market.  There is no cost to the district.
  2. Students are asked to pay for their own food expenses on the trip and bring snack food.  We recommend families budget $40-60 per day.  The booster club will also purchase snacks, water, and sport drinks for the team to use during the camp.
  3. The camper board at the camp.  Info is included on the previous email.  Student-athletes will stay in the dorms at Ft Lewis College.  Students will need to bring their own pillows and blankets.  Sheets are provided.
  4. Included with boarding costs.  We fundraise so students don’t have to pay for the camp out of their own pocket, I don’t believe in pay-to-play.  The total costs for 3 & 4 is budgeted at $1200.  This is a great deal compared to other team camps (Dixie St charges over $3000, Gonzaga over $3500) and our students can attend regardless of SES.
  5. None, except the Boosters may pay for meals.

C. Has already been completed.
D. none
E. none

The following link should provide other pertinent information, including the physical address of the college.

At the camp, we typically take a team picture on the college’s court, or a team picture elsewhere, to give to our booster sponsors so they can see where their generous donations go.  These are the events my former players remember years later.  I’m happy to provide testimonials if needed.
