Dave Nelson remembers helping his father-in-law, Ed Beyer, with dozens of Red River Valley basketball camps in the past. 

He also hosted a number of his own skills clinics during his years as a basketball coach in Ashby, Minn., and Mayville.

However, last week’s four-day Nelson Basketball Academy, hosted in Hillsboro by himself and sons, Craig and Brad Nelson, was a special one.

“It was a total team effort,” Dave, athletic director for Hillsboro-Central Valley, said.

“The boys organized it and the three of us implemented it and it was really a lot of fun.”
