ARMOUR SQUARE — Gio Grassano, a basketball coach with years of experience coaching teams at Mount Carmel High School, will soon run a youth basketball camp at Armour Square Park.

The camp is for boys and girls of all ages.

“The goal of the camp will be to create a positive learning environment for the children and to teach young players the fundamentals of basketball and improve on their skill levels,” Grassano said.

Starting next week, the camp will run on Thursdays at the park, 3309 S. Shields Ave. The camp ends April 6.

Camp for players in grades 1-4 runs from 6:30-7:30 p.m. Camp for players in grades 5-8 runs from 7:30-8:30 p.m.

The cost is $170 per child.
