Chattanooga Mocs Announce Summer Basketball Camp Dates

Wednesday, April 02, 2014

The Chattanooga Mocs men’s basketball team is hosting an individual camp June 16-20. The day camp is open to boys and girls with an age from entering second grade through eighth grade.

“We are excited about our first camp in Chattanooga,” Head Coach Will Wade said. “Our staff is very excited to work with the campers and help them learn the game of basketball. There is nothing better than teaching the game of basketball. We cannot wait to get started.”

During this fun-filled week, campers are exposed to the fundamentals of basketball. This is achieved through a mix of competitive games and skill station drill work with individual instruction and coaching from the camp staff.

Campers have the chance to win prizes and get autographs from their favorite Mocs players and coaches. Lunch is served daily and each camper receives a camp t-shirt and basketball.

Registration is 7:30-9 a.m., on June 16. Camp starts every morning at 9 a.m., and concludes at 4:30 p.m. The Friday awards ceremony starts at Noon. Campers are dropped off and picked up at Maclellan Gymnasium across the street from McKenzie Arena.
