Willimantic, Conn. - Eastern Connecticut State University's Athletic Department will host its annual summer youth basketball camp from 9 a.m.-4 p.m., July 23-Aug. 3. The clinic is designed for girls and boys of all skill levels, ages 5-16. Tuition is $195. All funds support Eastern's basketball program.
The goal of the camp is to provide each camper with the fundamentals of basketball, including shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding, defense and team play. The camp offers skill development, individual instruction, contests and basketball games. Individual shooting technique and offensive skill development are emphasized. The campers will be separated by age and will play two games daily.
Bill Geitner, Eastern's head men's basketball coach, will lead the camp, along with high school and college coaches, including current and former Eastern players.
Campers should bring their own lunch but may purchase snacks and drinks at the camp store. To register for the camp, interested persons should visit http://www.easternct.edu/athletics/men_basketball/documents/2011Brouchure2.pdf
