Hamar hoping for productive summer with altered schedule

As a result of the recent COVID-19 pandemic, athletes across the state have seen their typical offseason programs altered significantly to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. For Coach Brady Hamar, that means changing his typical summer slate that includes a variety of camps and summer leagues, which have been a vital part of Seiling’s success on the hardwood.

“Those experiences have been very important to our success through the years,” stated Coach Brady Hamar in reference to the camps and summer leagues Seiling hosts. “It’s also important to remember that when we built this facility, one of the things Mr. (Bob) Bush said at the time is that we need to make the most of this facility because it can help our community. There have been years where the high school summer league has had up to 21 teams. The junior high has had up to 14 or 15 teams. Over a two or threeday period, you bring in those schools, and they end up staying for up to five or six hours at a time. They end up making a few trips to Jiffy Trip, Dominoes or Gore’s Travel Plaza. So, they help this entire community. It’s disappointing that we aren’t getting to do that this year, but we can’t control that.”
