Lancaster – The 3rd Annual No Limits Basketball Camp is set for July 15 – 17 at the Ohio University Lancaster Campus. The three-day camp gives participants with and without disabilities an opportunity to learn new basketball skills while learning about each other.
The camp was developed by Ohio University Lancaster graduate Cody Sarensen when he was a student at the campus. Sarensen was given an Ohio Public Images Award of Merit for his work promoting awareness of those with developmental disabilities while organizing the first No Limits Basketball Camp. He was also named the Youth Hero at the Fairfield County American Red Cross Heroes Breakfast in 2012.
"I think this year's camp will be another successful camp," said Sarensen. "It's great to see those with and without disabilities enjoying the sport together and really learning from each other."
The camp is supported by the Fairfield County Board of Developmental Disabilities and is held in the Ohio University Lancaster Brasee Hall Gym.
"Fairfield DD and OUL work together to provide job training opportunities for the people the agency supports," said Sarensen. "So, this is another way to develop that partnership."
Players and coaches from the Ohio University Men's Basketball team will speak at the camp, as well as work with camp participants.
"It's great to have the O.U. basketball players attend the camp," said Sarensen. "It's really inspirational for the kids."
The No Limits Basketball Camp is an inclusive camp for people with and without disabilities ages 9-21.
