The Indiana Pacers and the National Basketball Academy have teamed up to produce a variety of Youth Hoops Basketball Camps which will be held at various locations throughout Central Indiana this summer between May 30 and August 14. These instructional camps, presented by Gatorade, are specifically designed for boys and girls, 5-17 years of age.

There will be 11 different sessions, held in such communities as Greenwood, Greenfield, Brownsburg, Noblesville, Zionsville and Indianapolis. Some of the camps are a week long; others only a day or two. Campers will be able to find the ideal camp for them with the right location and time.

The camps, which will feature all-time Pacers legend Darnell “Dr. Dunk” Hillman, will include daily skill competitions, 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 games and more. Each camper will also receive a ticket to a 2012-13 Pacers home game, a skill packet, a wrist-band and a Pacers tee-shirt. At some select sites, campers will receive their very own basketball. Three of the camps will feature an WNBA Indiana Fever player as a guest instructor and free Fever game tickets will be distributed.

“We of course are very proud of basketball in this state,” said Hillman, now the Associate Director of Alumni Relations for the Pacers. “We are so happy to be able to take our show on the road and assist in the development of many young people.”
