Billy O'Donnell Basketball Camp
Summer Camp: July 25 – July 29
About the Camp
The Billy O’Donnell Basketball Camp will offer youth ages 6-11 an opportunity to learn the sport of basketball, gain leadership skills and continue to develop important character traits that align with the Y’s core values: caring, honesty, respect and responsibility. Campers will use the skills they learn each day in competitive drills and scrimmages.
All camp activities are held at the B.R. Ryall YMCA.
About Billy O’Donnell
This camp was founded to honor the memory of Billy O’Donnell, his love of sports and his passion for coaching youth basketball at the B.R. Ryall YMCA. Billy graduated from Glenbard West High School, where he was a member of the football and lacrosse teams. He went onto play lacrosse at the University of Kentucky. A successful athlete, Billy treasured nothing more than the coaching plaque he received from the Y. When Billy passed away in 2015, his family requested that donations be made to the B.R. Ryall YMCA to fund scholarships for youth basketball.
