Nearly one-hundred fifty kids from the Central Coast learned the Mustang way this week. They attended the third annual Joe Callero camp put on by the head coach of the Cal Poly men's basketball team.
Several Cal Poly men's and women's players served as a camp counselors and worked with each of the kids, who ranged from the second to ninth grades. The four-day camp emphasized developing new skills, strong work habits, and carrying these traits into game situations.
Kids said they were leaving with a lot more than new and improved basketball skills.
"It makes me a lot bigger fan because I've been following them for quite a while. I just love them," said Devin Diaz, an 11 year old from Nipomo.
"It's a real win-win situation. We're representing Cal Poly in a fine way but these young men and women, these boys and girls, they dream about coming to Cal Poly basketball games and that's what's key," said Callero.
Nearly 150 kids took part in this year's camp, which is triple the number who attended the first year.
