CORPUS CHRISTI – The Texas A&M – Corpus Christi men's basketball team will again offer several camp options for Coastal Bend youths ages 7-17 this summer.

The Islanders will offer two single-day camps in June. On June 2, the shooting camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and costs $50. The intense instructional camp is for all campers who are interested in improving their shooting by teaching the basics of good jump, free throw, and off the dribble shooting. A written evaluation, drill packet to take home and free camp t-shirt and basketball will be provided to all campers.

On June 16, the staff will offer a big man/guard camp from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. for $50. This camp will help those who enroll become a more complete offensive player, as they help develop your skills in ball-handling, shooting, passing, rebounding and movement. Campers will also learn the fundamentals of post and guard play with position specific drills to improve their game. A camp t-shirt and basketball is also included.

There will also be a week-long day camp, offered in two sessions, the first running from June 18-21 and the second from June 25-28. These camps will provide fundamental work in all areas of a player's game, as there will be station work, contests and 5-on-5 league play. Drills, written evaluations, a t-shirt and basketball are included in the $100 cost for this camp, which runs from 8 a.m. to noon each day.

All camps will feature lectures by the Islanders coaching staff. The Texas A&M-Corpus Christi coaching staff will be assisted by coaches and counselors along with current members of the Islanders basketball team at the camps, and there will be an athletic trainer on duty at all times.
