Tom Crean's Instruction and Competition Camp | Click to register
New for 2012 is our Instruction and Competition Camp. The dates and daily schedule of this camp are specifically designed to allow a full day of basketball while accommodating our campers' (and parents') busy summer activity and travel schedules. An enrichment of our successful Day Camps of the past, the Instruction and Competition Camp is designed to emphasize the importance of skill development and the transfer of these specific skills into game play. Both offensive and defensive skills and techniques will be introduced at age- and skill-appropriate levels, and a wide variety of team games and skill challenges/contests will be played, including the customary `league play' culminating with championship tournaments for each age group.
Each day's activities will run from 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. (with flexible, supervised drop-off and pick-up periods before and after camp activities) and lunch will be included. A new twist is our Stay-and-Play option that will allow a camper and a parent the opportunity to stay overnight together on IU's campus. Mom or Dad will stay with their son in the same dormitories that the IU student-athletes stay in, eat all meals with their son (included in package cost) and receive a camp T-Shirt.
During camp hours, parents are welcome to watch their son enhance his skills in our air-conditioned basketball facilities or simply `get away' to relax on the campus on one of the nation's most beautiful universities in one of America's great college towns, Bloomington, Ind.
Dates: June 25, 26, 27, 28
Cost: $380/camper (includes lunch and camp T-Shirt)
Stay-and-Play Overnight Cost: $240/for each camper/parent pair (includes cost of meals and dorm stay); Parents MUST supervise and stay overnight with camper from dismissal of camp each day until the beginning of camp the following day; Includes all-you-can-eat breakfast and dinner buffets at on-site Indiana University Dining Facilities and lunch with the campers (and other parents) at our basketball facilities
