The Midland College Chaparral and Lady Chaparral athletic programs are looking ahead to a busy few weeks as they host a series of camps this summer for children and youth to improve skill and agility ... and have fun.

Chaps Basketball Coach Jordan Dreiling said, “We will be working with grade-school students one-on-one, as well as in teams. The camps will be led by MC coaches and assisted by current MC team members. It’s a great way for young men and women to improve their skills and get some exercise this summer. All activities will be held in the gym of the PE Building on the MC main campus.”
