Season after season, Elmhurst College's men's and women's basketball teams join the hunt for postseason play atop the standings in the College Conference of Illinois and Wisconsin (CCIW). The Bluejays have enjoyed consistent success over the years, and during summer months, the players and coaches come together to share their tips for success with the next generation of basket scorers during Hoop Haven. The summer camp's impressive roster of instructors includes John Baines, the camp's co-founder and head coach of the Elmhurst College's men's team.
During each half-day session, they lead campers in developing a slew of balling skills, which are then put to the test during competitions. And they send little hoopers home with a T-shirt and a basketball that they can use to further enhance their skills or to infuriate a downstairs neighbor.
