INSTITUTE, W.Va. (AP) - Garth Brooks has taken time out from a concert tour stop in West Virginia to hold a basketball camp for children.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (https://bit.ly/2evaXG6 ) reports the country music superstar participated in the camp Saturday at West Virginia State University in Institute.

Dressed in jeans and a black hoodie, Brooks encouraged camp participants and was on the floor during several drills. About 80 boys and girls ages 9 to 13 attended the camp. Members of the college’s men’s and basketball teams served as counselors.

Sports camps are common on Brooks‘ world tour. He says Saturday’s camp will help children learn skills and how to be teammates while enabling the college athletes to give back to the community.

Brooks performed concerts in Charleston on Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
