The sports and fitness organization, Inspire Academy, is the next avenue local youth basketball players can take to improve their skills or just get started! Coming up April 15th and 16th, the "Academy" will host their first youth basketball camp at Butte's West Elementary Gymnasium (800 S Emmett Avenue). Luckily for participants, former Montana Tech All-Conference football player Dion Williams Jr. will bring his agility and conditioning expertise to the camp. Working to also teach and encourage players at the Inspire Academy Youth Basketball Camp, will be Brian Smyth, head coach of Butte's Net Rippers (2023 Estes Tourney winners in their division), and Derrius Collins, coach of Rocky Mountain Elite and a former Oredigger stand out in basketball. For more information or to register visit Inspire Academy on Instagram and Facebook.
