Chatham Charter hosting basketball camps next month

Are you an elementary or middle school parent with a kid desperate to get on a court?

Starting Nov. 7, Chatham Charter’s varsity basketball teams are hosting five camps at their home gym in Siler City. Boys and girls of all skill levels are welcome; the age range is 2nd through 8th graders. Each session is limited to 20 participants, costs $30 and runs 9 a.m. to noon on a Saturday.

The Knights are using the camps as a fundraiser, and participants can sign up for as many as they’d like. Concessions will be available at each camp, too. The five sessions are on Nov. 7, Nov. 14, Nov. 21, Dec. 5 and Dec. 12. Forms must be filled out beforehand and won’t be accepted at the door.

For more information, contact varsity men’s basketball coach Jason Messier at jmessier@chathamcharter.org or varsity women’s assistant coach Jamar Ross at jaeross10@gmail.com. You can also access a form here.

Northwood’s Morgan gets college offer

Tucker Morgan, a senior who should be among Northwood men’s basketball’s top contributors this winter, has received an offer from Fayetteville Tech, he announced on Twitter Sunday.

It’s the first offer for Morgan, a 6-foot-3 stretch forward who averaged 1.5 points and one rebound as a junior. He’s also been playing extensive summer basketball with his AAU club, the Durham Hurricanes.

Fayetteville Tech is a two-year community college that competes in the National Junior College Athletics Association’s Region 10. The Trojans’ men’s basketball team went 15-16 in 2019-20.
