ABOUT THE CAMPS
For more than 50 years
Camp Fighting Scot has provided young players a chance to work on their games under the guidance of some of the nation’s top basketball coaches. Started by legendary Wooster Coach Al Van Wie in 1969, Wooster has hosted more than 20,000 campers during the past 5 decades.
In 2020, Camp Fighting Scot will host 2 weeks of camp under the direction of Head College of Wooster basketball coach, Doug Cline. With more than 15 College and High School coaches supplementing the coaching staff, campers will receive a heavy dose of fundamentals, teamwork and skill development.
Each week of camp offers both Overnight and Commuter options for boys grades 4-12.
CAMP FIGHTING SCOT:
A BUSY SCHEDULE
Activity begins at 8:20 a.m. The morning sessions emphasize individual and team offensive techniques. After lunch the emphasis shifts to defensive skills. During free time, the camper can take advantage of the College’s games room for bowling, billiards, etc., or just relax, or maybe write home. There is league play in the evening. Each camper is assigned to a team by his ability, age, and size. There are awards for the league champions. Before lights out, everyone has the chance to discuss his strengths and weaknesses with the counselors and coaches in the dorm.
The daily schedule is extremely flexible. Since we are primarily interested in what is best for the individual, the agenda will be adjusted to suit each camper’s needs. For instance, the younger boys will not be required to complete the same syllabus as the older players
Making sure every young man receives individual instruction is the main goal of our camp. With a ratio of one coach for every seven campers, individual attention is assured.
Several staff members at Camp Fighting Scot have outstanding expertise in giving shooting instruction. Many hours are spent working individually with campers on their shooting technique.
The staff is composed of high school and college coaches who have proven their ability to teach. These men place great emphasis on the highest principles of athletics. Outstanding college players will serve as camp counselors.
Safety is our top priority at Camp Fighting Scot. The boys are chaperoned the entire time at camp. The coaches are with the boys on and off the courts and stay in the dorms during the week.
A full-time trainer is on duty throughout each session. In addition, the medical facilities of the Wooster Community Hospital are within one mile of the College campus in case of any emergency.
Registration & Check-Out:
Final registration is held between 1:30 and 2:45 p.m. on the first day of each camp session. Check in at the Armington Physical Education Center on The College of Wooster campus. Camp will conclude at 4:15 p.m. on the final day of each session.
Dorm Room Assignments:
Due to College housing policy, we have only a limited number of triple rooms available. The majority of rooms will be doubles. Some singles will be available. Campers will be placed in adjacent rooms to friends upon request. Room assignments will be made upon arrival at camp; exception: triple rooms can be reserved in advance.
Upon registration, each camper will be provided with a Camp Fighting Scot tee shirt and basketball. The camper should bring his own basketball shoes, socks, etc. Please make sure these items are labeled. Each person should also bring his own sheets, a light blanket and pillow, plus informal clothes.
A word about food…both quality and quantity are accented at the Camp Fighting Scot training table. Every camper gets as much food to eat as he wants.
A $10 key deposit is required at check-in on the first day of camp. This deposit should be paid in cash and will be returned at the end of the week if the key is not lost.
