UK released information on the John Calipari’s Overnight and Father & Son Basketball Camps this week. Here’s all you need to know.
JOHN CALIPARI OVERNIGHT BASKETBALL CAMP
The John Calipari Overnight Basketball Camp is scheduled for June 16-19 (Sunday to Wednesday) and is open to boys ages 7-17.
To register as an overnight camper and stay in a dorm room for this year’s Overnight Camp, participants MUST be 12 years of age prior to the first day of camp (6/16/13). Campers below the age of 12 MUST register and participate as a Day Camper/Commuter, per University of Kentucky Athletics Department policy.
The overnight camp offers four days of skills training, team games, individual competitions and a division tournament. Campers will be pre-assigned to appropriate age/grade level divisions in which all skills work, competitions and games will take place. Skills work will be taught by UK coaches and staff, along with current and former Wildcat players. Each camper will be assigned a team within their respective age groups. Complete camp itineraries, gym schedules, and Day Camper drop-off and pick-up information will be included in the confirmation email sent to parents prior to the start of camp. Parents are encouraged to visit any of the gym sites to watch their children participate in camp activities.
The cost of the camp is $430 for overnight campers and $350 for day campers.
JOHN CALIPARI FATHER & SON CAMPS
The John Calipari Father & Son Camps have proved to be so popular over the past few years that the program is holding two separate sessions this summer. Session 1 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 7-8, while Session 2 is scheduled for Friday and Saturday, June 14-15 (Father’s Day weekend).
What can you expect from the father/son camp? This year’s father and son participants will be treated to instruction from the UK coaches and staff, along with current and former Wildcat players through detailed skill work and competitions in the best facilities in college basketball.
Father and son teams will compete with fellow campers of appropriate age groups (based on son’s age/grade level) in competitions that incorporate skills learned throughout the camp. The skill work is designed to give both father and son drills and techniques to take home and continue working on together. This camp is open to all fathers and sons ages 6-17, regardless of previous basketball experience.
The cost of the camp is $180 per individual.
There are a limited number of spots are available for all camps, which will be first-come, first-serve. All of the camps listed were SOLD OUT the last two summers, so early registration is encouraged to secure a spot.
