Update 10/12/10

Special Announcement: Bob Huggins, Head Basketball Coach of the West Virginia Mountaineers, will be a guest speaker at our 2010 John Calipari Basketball Clinic. His emphasis will be on teaching the open-post offense and the 1-3-1 defense.

There cannot be any recruitable age participants. So if you're entering 7th grade-12th grade you will not be allowed to register or attend.

LEXINGTON, Ky. - The 2010 John Calipari Basketball Clinic will be held on Saturday, Oct. 30 from 9:00 a.m. - 6:00 p.m. ET at Rupp Arena.

Now open to male and female fans and coaches, the day-long instructional clinic gives a unique glimpse into the coaching philosophies and strategies Coach Calipari uses in guiding the defending SEC champion, Kentucky Wildcats. Included in this unique clinic, will be a chance to tour the Joe Craft Center and Wildcat Lodge with experts available to answer questions.

"After our sold-out women's clinic, we had a lot of people interested in seeing some of the same things over 500 women got to see during their clinic," Calipari said. "By opening this up to general fans and coaches alike, we are able to give even more citizens of the Big Blue Nation a chance to get behind the 'Big Blue Curtain.'"

Attendees will be given exclusive access to watch Coach Cal conduct two practice sessions with the 2010-11 Wildcats (offensive and defensive sessions with an emphasis on pick and roll and the dribble drive motion offense) and be given opportunities to ask questions of Coach Cal and his staff.

Registration for the co-ed Clinic will be from 7:30 - 9:00 a.m. at Rupp Arena on Oct. 30.

Registration is also available online. For more information, please contact the Kentucky Basketball office at 800.852.2875 or 859.257.1916.

*NOTE: Due to NCAA regulations, no youths entering 7th -12th grade will be allowed to register or attend.
