Memphis Grizzlies to host 15 Summer Youth Basketball Camps presented by Nike
The Memphis Grizzlies today announced their annual Summer Youth Basketball Camps presented by Nike, with a total of 15 sessions in multiple locations across the Mid-South. All sessions will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day, and the camps are open to boys and girls from ages 7-16. Participants of all skill levels are welcome.
At each session, campers will receive skills training from Grizzlies Youth Basketball staff, which is comprised of current and former college players and coaches, referees, and other basketball professionals. The drills and activities taught during each camp are modeled after some of the same training techniques used by the Memphis Grizzlies themselves. To supplement the technical training, participants will also compete in a variety of fun and challenging contests, competitions and games throughout each of the four-day sessions.
Campers will also receive a giveaway package which will include a Nike camp T-shirt, a full-size Grizzlies basketball, and other Grizzlies-themed items. Each camp will also end with an awards ceremony which will recognize all campers, and will have opportunities to win autographed merchandise and other prizes. As a program highlight, most sessions will feature appearances by Memphis Grizzlies personalities, including players like Mike Conley and Jaren Jackson Jr. plus coaches and entertainment teams.
Finally, and for the first time ever, the team will also host an All-Girls Camp. While general sessions will remain co-ed, this specialty camp (June 24-27 at Independent Presbyterian Church) will allow female campers to play alongside and compete against other young girls exclusively. In addition to the standard camp perks, the All-Girls camp will also feature: special female instructors, a panel of female Grizzlies employees and other industry leaders so as to encourage and inspire attendees, plus featured content and giveaways from Nike’s “Made to Play” and Jr. NBA’s “Her Time To Play” initiatives.
