UK Hoops Announces Summer Camp Dates

May 18, 2011

The Kentucky women’s basketball program has announced the dates for three summer camps in June to be conducted by UK Hoops head coach Matthew Mitchell and his staff.

The Overnight Individual Camp is June 12-15 for girls entering grades 5-12 next fall. The individual camp is designed to develop the total basketball player. Campers receive detailed instruction about ball handling, passing, dribbling, footwork, defense and rebounding. Each camper participates in league games as well as a variety of individual competitions.

The Elite Camp is June 24-26 for girls entering grades 7-12. It is designed for the serious-minded, advanced players who are looking to take their game to another level. Campers will receive individual instruction on their skill development. Position play is the main focus and players will work on skills that will make them a better all-around player.

The Day Camp is set for June 27-29. It is open to girls entering grades 2-8 next fall. The camp focuses on fundamentals of the game and is designed to excite young girls about the game of basketball. Campers will be divided into groups based on age and ability. There will be games and daily fun competitions. Campers are asked to bring lunches each day; drinks will be provided.

“I would like to take this opportunity to personally invite you to the 2011 Kentucky Women's Basketball Camps,” Mitchell said. “Our camps guarantee an exciting and fun-filled experience. The camps provide a complete, in-depth basketball experience emphasizing fundamentals in order to allow young girls to reach their full potential. In addition, our camps allow participants to receive great instruction from the Kentucky women's basketball coaches and players. We look forward to seeing you this summer.”

All camps will be held on the University of Kentucky campus, including storied Memorial Coliseum and the state-of-the-art Joe Craft Center where the UK men’s and women’s basketball teams practice. An airport shuttle will run for all individual camps to and from Lexington, Louisville and Cincinnati airports.
