The Youngstown State women's basketball program will host three individual camps and a team shootout this summer.
Penguins Head Coach John Barnes, his coaching staff and student-athletes from the team will serve as instructors at two elite camps for high-level high school players, an individual camp for youth and the team camp.
The sessions for the elite camps will be June 26 and Aug. 7, and they are for players who will be in grades 9-12 in the fall. It will be designed for players who want to showcase their skills and are looking to play at the collegiate level. The camp structure will be heavy on competition and scrimmaging with drills and station work also on the agenda. The cost for each session will be $80, or players can attend both for $150.
The focus of the individual half-day camp will be to improve the all-around game for players entering grades 4-8 in the fall. Campers will participate in drills geared toward skill development in ball-handling, passing, shooting, defense and rebounding, and there will also be individual and team competitions with awards. The camp will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each day from June 27-30. The camp will cost $115 if registration is completed by June 6, and campers registering afterward or on the first day of camp will cost $125. Attendees will receive prizes and a t-shirt.
In the team camp, teams will be guaranteed four games with certified high school officials, and there will be an effort to match teams against clubs of similar talent to ensure competitive games. Instruction time will be built into the camp. The cost will be $275 per team. Payment and registration must be received by June 10.
