The summer 2021 program has been canceled

DUE TO THE COVID-19 PANDEMIC AND OUR DESIRE TO PROTECT EVERYONE'S HEALTH, KNOX COLLEGE HAS DECIDED TO CANCEL THE 2021 SUMMER CAMPS. WE LOOK FORWARD TO PLANNING THE 2022 SUMMER CAMPS.

The Knox College Basketball Camp is open to boys and girls entering grades 3-8 in the 2020-21 school year. It is our goal to give all our players a positive basketball experience. We want the game to be fun by making each player better than they were before camp. Good sportsmanship, as well as good attitude, will be emphasized so that all our athletes will be better people as well. Basketball will be taught, coached, and played on a competitive basis. Balanced teams will be formed, and players will play an equal share of time in each game. All participants will receive a camp t-shirt.

Session Info: 

June 15-19 
1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Memorial Gym, Knox College

Focus

The focus is on developing the offensive skills of the campers. Proper footwork, shooting technique, individual offensive moves, and ballhandling will be stressed each session.

Facilities

Participants will practice and play in Memorial Gymnasium and T. Fleming Fieldhouse, both located on the Knox College campus. These facilities provide four full basketball courts and 10 baskets.

Cost and Registration 

Cost of the camp is $100.00. Students need submit only one registration form for all programs they will participate in—if you're ready, register online.

What to Bring to Camp 

  • Basketball shoes
  • Water bottle

Instruction

Emily Cline and Ben David, head coaches of the Knox women's and men's basketball teams,will be active as the instructors in each session, giving players hands on instruction. In addition, Knox men's and women's assistant coaches and players will be involved as instructors.
