Derrick Lewis Basketball Camp at Archbishop Spalding High School

Over one hundred boys filled the Archbishop Spalding High School gym this week for 50 hours of basketball fun.

Coach Derrick Lewis played at University of Maryland from 1985 to 1988, and also spent 16 years playing pro ball in France. Lewis is the current varsity coach for Archbishop Spalding.  

Lewis, with the help of his assistant coaches, Patrick McKindless, Fred Teodosio, and 18 Archbishop Spalding High School basketball players, helped 130 boys, ages 7 to 16 have fun while improving their basketball skills.

The camp started Monday morning and runs through Friday afternoon.  The kids keep busy by moving from station to station and playing scrimmages. Most campers will tell you the scrimmages were the highlight of their day but a few said lunch and just playing with their friends.

Fred Teodosio, the JV Head Coach said: "The kids have so much fun at camp that they do not have a handle on the fact that they are learning basketball. They are having fun with the other kids as they go from station to station. The kids seem like they can't wait to get here, which is fantastic!"

This has been a GREAT camp. I love the way Coach Lewis runs the activities; the kids are learning new skills, excited to play and thrilled to get back at it the next morning. We will definitely be back next year. And, playing with a former Terp??? It doesn't get any better than that!
