The Youngstown State women's basketball coaches will host two elite camps and a half-day individual camp this summer on campus. The camps will be operated by John Barnes Basketball Camps, LLC.

Coach Barnes and his staff will welcome high-level high school players to campus for Elite Camp sessions on June 23 and Aug. 4. The Elite Camp sessions are designed for players entering grades 9-12 who are looking to play at the collegiate level and want to showcase their skills. The camp will be heavy on competition and scrimmages with drills and station work also on the agenda. The camp will cost $80 per session, which includes lunch, and go from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Parents are welcome to stay and watch the drill and game portion of the camp. Players who wish to attend both sessions will receive a $10 discount and pay $150 total.

The staff will welcome area youth basketball players to campus for four days of an Individual Half Day Camp that runs from June 25-28 in the Stambaugh Stadium Gymnasiums. The camp is for players entering grades 4-8 and will focus on basic fundamentals, such as ball-handling, passing, shooting, defense and rebounding. There will be individual and team competitions where awards will be given. Campers will be separated into groups based on age and skill level, and there will be a maximum of 10 campers per instructor. The cost is $130, and the camp will go from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. each of the four days. There will be a $10 discount for campers who register by May 31. Walkups will be accepted.

Online registration is available through PenguinsCamps.com. Questions should be directed to YSU Women's Basketball Recruiting Coordinator Andy Crane at acrane@ysu.edu.

All YSU women's basketball camps are open to any and all entrants.
