Those are essential elements one can find at the Stan Heath Razorback Basketball Camp being held in Bud Walton Arena this summer.
The next camp begins Monday and runs through July 1. The first session is for first-through-eighth graders from 8 a.m. until noon. The afternoon session is for ninth-through-12th graders from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m. daily.
Arkansas assistant coach Darren Sorenson is the camp coordinator.
"We have a lot of things to offer during these day camps," Sorenson said. "During the day camps, there are at lot of fundamentals stressed. We teach rebounding, ball handing and defense.
"It's a lot of fun for the kids. They learn a lot from our basketball staff and volunteers."
Sorenson also said there are 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 games being played during these camps.
"There also is a lot of individual skills we teach," Sorenson said. "It's stuff like that that makes this a special camp."
Sorenson said he expects "around 150 kids" to participate in the next camp. And there are plenty of legitimate volunteers available.
"We've got guys like former Razorbacks players like Clint McDaniel and Clyde Fletcher helping us," Sorenson said. "In the past we've had guys like Todd Day helping out, too."
Sorenson said an overnight camp is scheduled for July 17-July 20.
That camp is for players in third through eighth grades.
"This camp is a lot more intense," Sorenson said. "We expect to have around 200-to-250 kids out for that one. There is a lot of station work and we had a lot of success with it last year.
"It's our best camp."
