There is still room to sign up for the second session of the Indiana basketball Instruction and Competition Camp that runs June 28-July 1 and is geared to boys in grades 4-12.

The following is the release about the camp put out this week by IU media relations.BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - With the summer of 2014 in full swing, it is getting closer to the start of the camp season with the Indiana Men's Basketball program. Head coach Tom Crean and current players will lead the camps throughout the summer, with a number of different options available for kids and families of all ages.

The second session of the Instruction and Competition Camp starts on June 28 and runs through July 1 and is geared towards boys and girls in grades 4-12. The camp provides an emphasis on the importance of skill development and the transfer of these specific skills into game play. Both offensive and defensive skills and techniques will be introduced at age- and skill-appropriate levels and a wide variety of team games and skill challenges/contests will be played, including the customary 'league play' culminating with championship tournaments for each age group.

Each camper will receive a t-shirt and parents are invited to attend any of the instruction sessions throughout the camp.

The camp runs from 9:00 a.m. through 5:00 p.m. each day and is open for boys and girls in grades 4-12. It is geared towards providing a daily schedule that allows a full day of basketball while accommodating the campers' (and parents) busy summer activity schedules. An emphasis on the importance of skill development and translating that over into game play is a key part of this camp.
