Rhinelander Basketball Association hosts Ryan Borowicz basketball camp
RHINELANDER - The Rhinelander Basketball Association prepared for the winter sports season by holding a camp this weekend for students from 3rd grade through high school.

The camp was run by Ryan Borowicz who owns a basketball training center near Green Bay. Rhinelander's girls basketball coach Ryan Clark knows Borowicz from college. Clark said he was happy to have Borowicz work with his team.

"He's a fantastic guy and he's just a credible source, but he's a guy you want to have around your young men and women. He's a great mentor and he knows the game really well," said Clark.

Borowicz travels to different schools all across Wisconsin for camps. He says he enjoys visiting smaller communities like Rhinelander.

"It's communities like this that are kind of fun, because the kids a little more teachable often times as well. They want to learn because they don't always have those outside influences to come in and teach. If you go to a bigger city you have more opportunity," said Borowicz.

Saturday's camp for the high school students focused mostly on shooting. Clark and the Hodags girls team will begin practicing Monday.
