HONOLULU – The Rainbow Warrior Basketball Camp began Monday, with Gib Arnold running the show. Listening attentively were over 100 little hoopsters ranging in age from six to 17.
Arnold was clearly at ease with his charges. "I love camp. I've gone to a million of them, done a million of them, so this is a time that's a lot of fun for me" said the UH head Coach.
The camps offer children a chance to receive instruction from college coaches, and for the coaches to potentially spot some upcoming local talent.
"Every camp has a couple of these kids that we definitely watch. There were a couple from last year that I made sure to watch on their AAU teams."
Gib's summer of hoops isn't relegated to instructing camps. Besides the upcoming recruiting period in July, Arnold will get a chance to work with his own players as well.
"The NCAA has changed the rules, so for the first time I actually get to work kids out this summer, which is great, never been able to do that. We're going to---not have practice, but individual workouts."
