Players can pick up registration forms at WHS or Roosevelt Elementary School. The registration forms should be brought to the Braves weight room, or mailed to Coach Neil Phipps at Washington High School.
Cost for the four-day camp is $35 per player, and $50 total for two players from the same family. Camp registration includes a Camp t-shirt and shorts.
Grades 7-8 will participate from 5-6:30 p.m., with first-day check-in at 4:30 p.m. Grades 9-12 will participate from 6-8 p.m., with first-day check-in at 5:30 p.m.
