"Little Dribblers" basketball camp begins at Lakeland
MINOCQUA - Lakeland Union High School began its Little Dribblers basketball camp this week.

The camp attracts dozens of children in the Minocqua area to the high school fieldhouse every Monday and Friday for an hour of basketball lessons.

Instructor Melissa Ouimette is also the head coach for Lakeland's girls basketball team.

She wants to make Little Dribblers open to both people who live in Minocqua and those outside the area.

"People come up and visit for the summer and I have a lot of parents that say 'my grandson is vacationing here, we'll be here for most of the summer but not all of it, is it OK,'" Ouimette said. "I try to offer a bunch of different options for anybody."

Ouimette can't do it all by herself, though.

She has members of Lakeland's girls and boys basketball teams to help her, including her daughter Julianna, an incoming freshman.


Julianna says coaching kids is a lot of fun.
"A lot of the kids, if they start working hard, you can tell they want to get better," Julianna said. "It's fun to be competitive with them and win with them, especially if they look up to you, then it's fun encouraging them more."

The camp runs through the summer and teaches kids the basics of shooting, dribbling and passing,
