Astoria youth basketball team

The Astoria youth basketball team, coached by Kevin Goin, has won two tournaments in two weeks.

The annual Riverside Basketball Camp is scheduled for next week, Monday through Thursday.

The camp will be split into two sessions, one for boys entering grades 1-4, and another for boys entering grades five through 12. Both sessions take place at Astoria Middle School.

Cost of the camp is $35, or free for members of the Astoria High School summer league. The camp is open to all kids, including non-Astoria residents. A T-shirt is included.

Session 1 (grades 5-12) takes place from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. each day, followed by Session 2 (grades 1-4) from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The camp is run by Astoria High boys coach Kevin Goin and his coaching staff.

Registration is at the door, with checks made payable to Astoria High School.
