June 5, 2013


LEXINGTON, Ky. -- The University of Kentucky men's basketball program is pleased to announce the dates and information for the inaugural John Calipari Dribble Drive, Shooting and Skills Academy.

Inspired by Coach Cal's innovative and successful offense, the Dribble Drive, Shooting and Skills Academy is the first of its kind and will offer detailed skill work designed for players off all ages. All of the drills taught are geared exclusively toward the skills needed to succeed in the Dribble Drive Motion Offense. The Academy will focus primarily on the offensive skills that campers can take home and continue using to improve their offensive skill set.

The inaugural academy is scheduled to take place Saturday, Aug. 3 at the Joe Craft Center, and will offer two separate sessions available for registration. Both sessions are open to both boys and girls from kindergarten through 12th grade, with a limited number of spots available in each session. Each academy will provide campers will extensive interaction with current Kentucky coaches and players as they teach offensive skills stations, demonstrate drills used by the Kentucky players, and speak about what it takes to become a champion. Campers will enjoy all of this in the comfort of the greatest facilities in all of college basketball.

Camper's grade level is based on the grade in which the camper will be enrolled during the fall of the 2013 school year.
