Parents please do not just drop off your player! Check to make sure open gym has not
been canceled or moved because of conflicts with unforeseen school events!! Open Gyms
will not take place when school is closed.

WHAT: Open gyms are for any girl player who wishes to work on fundamentals, play
games, scrimmage or just shoot baskets. You may come when you can and leave when
you have to. The youth program and its coaches provide this time for players to have fun
and to sharpen their skills. Our open gyms are run by the youth and HS coaches, and OC
head coach Kurt Guelsdorf. Open gym is not just for those players who will be trying out
for our competitive teams but for anyone wishing to have some fun and improve their
basketball skills. Please come and give it a try, bring a friend, the more the merrier.

There is no cost to attend Open Gyms.

Equipment and Dress: Please bring non-marking gym shoes to change into. Street
tennis shoes will not be allowed on the gym floor because of the damage they cause. Also,
because of the high turnout of players, it is suggested you bring your own basketball.
(Make sure it is clean, and your name is on it.) OCJGBA does have some basketballs

OCJGBA: Oregon City Junior Girls Basketball Association is the High Schools
competitive youth program. We are overseen by the High School coaching staff and are

The End of the Trail Girl’s basketball camp will be holding its 36th Annual Summer Basketball Camp on Monday, June 22nd-25th at Oregon City High and Monday, June 29th-July 2nd at Oregon City High School. The cost is $130.00 per week or $210.00 for both weeks.

Each week has a different emphasis, which consists of teaching the fundamentals of either offense or defense.

Week 1 the emphasis is defensive fundamentals and ball handling.
Week 2’s emphasis is on offensive moves and shooting, with the use of videotape review.

The camp stresses competitive games and contests that allow the players to put into practice what they have been taught. The last day is a basketball skill Olympics, where the players attempt to test their skills during competitive drills. There are daily awards and prizes for the winners of these competitions and all participants receive a camp T-shirt.

The camp has been sold out every year because of its focus on the improvement of the participants and the enthusiasm it generates. The camp draws players from all over Clackamas County and the Portland area. The camp has been home to over 33 all state players and 8 high school All Americans. 

The camps will run from 8:30-11:30 for girls entering 3rd-6th grades and 1:00-5:00 for girls entering 7th-9th gradesLimited enrollment allows for all instruction, drills, and games to be conducted on a 5 to 1 ratio. We limit the camp to 112 participants.
