STARKVILLE, Miss. -Young players have the opportunity to learn from championship-winning coaches this summer as Mississippi State head coach Vic Schaefer and his staff conduct their inaugural summer basketball camps.
This year's camp slate gets underway with the June 6-9 individual camp. The Lady Bulldogs host two position camps (June 13-15 and 27-29) and a team camp June 15-17. A shootout camp will be conducted June 16, and the staff will cap off the summer of camps with Elite camp June 30-July1.
The individual camp is open to grades 5-12 and consists of personal instruction from Schaefer, associate head coach Johnnie Harris, assistant coach Aqua Franklin and director of operations Maryann Baker.
The individual camp is geared to help players work on the "total" game. Campers will go through individual drills, position work, shooting and fast breaks while also being involved in team practices and league games.
MSU's two position camps are open to players in grades 7-12. Campers will be split by age groups, and instruction will focus on the players' primary position (guard, forward, center).
During the position camps, players will work on posting up, feeding the ball to the post, perimeter shooting off the dribble and screens, point guard responsibilities, finishing moves to the bucket and much more.
MSU's highly-regarded team camp offers high school, junior high and AAU teams the opportunity to play up to nine games during the three days. The camp offers teams the opportunity to compete against other top competition while gaining assistance from the Lady Bulldog camp staff.
During the team camp, the much-anticipated shootout camp features a day of intense competition, offering squads the opportunity to play three games in one day.
The Lady Bulldogs end the summer with the elite camp, which is open to players in grades 9-12. The two-day camp offers highly-skilled, advanced high school players the opportunity to prepare for the college game by learning from Mississippi State's championship-winning coaching staff.
