UK Announces Inaugural Father/Daughter John Calipari Basketball Camp



The Kentucky basketball father/son camp has been a staple in the Bluegrass for years. Now it’s the girls’ turn.

This summer John Calipari will host the first ever Kentucky Basketball Father/Daughter Camp. Fathers and daughters will receive individual instruction from UK basketball players and coaches during the one-day event. The skill work is designed to give both father and daughter drills and techniques to take home and continue working on together.

The camp is set for June 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Joe Craft Center and costs $198 for the father-daughter combo. It’s open to all fathers and daughters from ages 6-17, regardless of basketball experience. Campers will receive two sessions of instruction, lunch, a camp t-shirt and photo/autograph opportunities with the players and coaches.

Online registration is now open. Click here to find more information on the camp. If you’re interested in other Kentucky basketball camps, you’ll find all that information here.

    What a wonderful thing for fathers and daughters, a basketball camp with Cal. It will be a great Saturday for the girls to spend time with Coach Cal and their daddy. They don’t have to sit and wonder when it will take place, just like the other camps, they know in plenty of time. They are going to have so much fun and learn so much. Same goes for the father and son camps and the coach’s camps and all the other camps.
    But why do the ladies have to wait so long to find out when our camp is going to be? The date is always on a Sunday which is bad for out of town women who have to be at work the next day and the time allotted for the camp is not long enough. Almost 1000 participants are too much. If you are going to have that many participants you need to either have longer hours or 2 days not 1. And look how long the other camps are, this one is 9 AM to 4 PM. I assume they are going to feed them lunch; we don’t get that or anything else anymore other than a shirt. If we want a signed ball we have to pay for it via the camp.
    Contrary to popular belief, women do know their basketball and many of them could out smart any man who thinks he knows it all. We enjoy the games as much as anyone else, we are not second class citizens like some people are trying to make us.
    I liked it a lot better when it was at memorial and the Craft Center. We got lunch! There are a lot of women who are not coming anymore. I’m not sure if I will this year, it is getting too expensive and too crowded. BTW something could be done to speed up check in also.
