The 2016 BISD Summer Camp season is underway with four camps this week and another round coming up next week.

The camps are spread between Belton High School’s Tiger Field, BHS Tennis Courts, BHS9’s practice fields and South Belton Middle School. The basketball and volleyball camps are being held at SBMS due to repairs to the roof around Tiger Gym.

Baseball’s annual camp was held on Monday to Wednesday at Tiger Field. The campers learned hitting, running, fielding and throwing techniques throughout the three-day camp.

Tennis’ annual camp focused on agility, hitting, footwork and the physicality of the game.

Boys Soccer’s annual camp focused on dribbling, defense, physical fitness and shooting.

Girls Basketball’s annual camp focused on footwork, shooting, dribbling, offensive and defensive skills.

Belton Lady Tigers Softball camp was cancelled due to poor field conditions and will not be made up. The field has been in rough shape with the consistent rains since the bi-district softball playoff game against Garland on April 28.
