AMERICUS, Ga. – Basketball season may be a few months away, but there are still plenty of hoops to be played to wrap up the summer break. If you love basketball, then there is no reason to miss the final 2012 Georgia Southwestern Basketball Camp. With the Georgia Southwestern Hurricanes on hand to teach campers, the camp will give boys and girls ages 6-14 the ultimate basketball experience in Southwestern Georgia.
"The Georgia Southwestern Basketball Camp is a great chance to not only have fun and play basketball, but it's an even better chance to improve your skills with the help of our players," said head coach Mike Leeder.
With members of Georgia Southwestern basketball as camp counselors, campers will learn the fundamentals of basketball while having fun with three-point shooting competitions, dunk contests and other games. Campers will also get shirts, a chance to swim in the campus pool and a great photo to remember camp by.
