May 4, 2017 – The Charlotte Hornets will hold more than 20 Hornets Hoops Summer Camps across the region this June through August. Highlights of this summer’s schedule include the Hornets Players Camp and a girls-only camp that will feature former WNBA All-Star Andrea Stinson.

The Hornets Players Camp will take place July 5-7 at Charlotte Latin School. This camp, for boys and girls, ages 7-16, will feature appearances by Hornets players Kemba Walker and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, as well as renowned trainer Johnny Stephene, aka Dribble2much.

The girls-only camp will be held June 26-29 at Ardrey Kell High School. This camp is designed for girls ages 7-14 to interact with their peers and develop their understanding of the game in a fun and supportive atmosphere. The camp will feature appearances by three-time WNBA All-Star Andrea Stinson, who played eight seasons for the Charlotte Sting.

All remaining camps are for boys and girls, ages 7-14, of any skill level. The four-day camps go from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with the exception of the Hornets Players Camp (Wednesday through Friday) and the half-day camp at Holy Trinity Middle School from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. July 31-August 3.

The two camps in Greensboro will take place July 10-13 and July 31-August 3 at The Fieldhouse at the Greensboro Coliseum Complex, the home of the Swarm.

Hornets Hoops Summer Camps are designed to teach and reinforce proven basketball techniques in a fun, positive and disciplined manner. The camps focus on fundamental skills and feature high-level basketball instruction from qualified coaches who aim to encourage a life-long love for the game of basketball and the Charlotte Hornets.

Camps will feature skills stations, drills, instructional lectures, competitive games and contests, as well as individual and team prizes. Each participant will receive a camper pack with a reversible jersey, performance T-shirt, official Spalding basketball, “hoodie sweatshirt” drawstring bag, ticket voucher for a Hornets home game and more.
