The University of Minnesota Duluth (UMD) men’s and women’s basketball teams made history this year, with the women advancing all the way to the NCAA final.

So what better way for kids in the Northland to sharpen their dribbling skills then with some of the best.

As on Monday the Romano Gym was jam packed for the start of the 2023 Day Camp.

“It’s a little bit of a challenging camp because obviously there’s a variety of skills. But the nice part is we put them with their age groups and this is an awesome camp because they get to spend time with our players. Our players are incredible people, they work really hard and they’re awesome role models. I think basketball and just sports in general, getting out and meeting people, being challenged, all those things that athletics brings to young people’s lives is a positive thing and we are just try to give these kids a really good experience,” said women’s basketball head coach Mandy Pearson.

Campers ranging from 3rd-8th grade for boy’s and girls today received skill instruction from UMD Bulldog coaches and players, along with 1v1, 3v3 and 5v5 games and activities.

The camp is scheduled to run through this Thursday, for more information on the summer camps UMD athletics provide CLICK HERE.
