May 17, 2007
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - Indiana head coach Kelvin Sampson announced the dates of his basketball camps for this summer. Sampson, his staff and Indiana men's basketball players will aim to help develop the individuals game with personal coaching tips, as well as personalized evaluations of each camper.
"Our overnight camp, we expect it to be one of the best camps around," Sampson said. "The thing I love about our camps, our coaches work the camp. I run the camp. Each one of my assistant coaches is a commissioner in the camp. Our players coach in the camp and we go out and get the best high school coaches to work the camp. We want this to be a fun camp and a great learning experience for everyone attending."
The first of six camps begin on June 8-10, for the Father/Child Overnight Camp. This camp, designed for ages 9-18, will allow parents to learn basketball skills alongside their children under the direction of Sampson and his players. The cost of the three-day camp is $310 for both individuals, while additional children can be added at a cost of $150 for each additional child. A $75 deposit is also required.
A Day Camp will be held on June 11-14 at the rate of $210 per camper per session. This camp is designated for all types of players ages 6-18.
