STARKVILLE, Miss. – Players can develop their basketball skills under the watchful eye of the Mississippi State women’s basketball coaching staff during the Bulldogs’ summer camp slate.
HailState Hoops will host five camps in June, and players can register at www.hailstate.com/camps. More information on the camps is available at the site or by calling the women’s basketball office at (662) 325-0198.
The camps begin June 8-9 with the Elite Camp. Open to players in grades 9-12, the camp costs $150 for residents and $125 for commuters, and focuses on developing high school players’ individual skills sets and preparing them for the collegiate level.
Campers will also be given the opportunity to experience the typical day of a student-athlete, from spending time on the practice floor to watching game film with the coaches and learning the academic expectations required of student-athletes.
Mississippi State hosts its Day Camp for grades 2-7 June 10-13. The camp, which costs $65, runs each day from 8 a.m. to noon. The camp teaches fundamental skills to aspiring players through drills and other fun competitions.
Teams can test their skills and begin preparing for a championship season during a pair of Shootout Camps, one June 14 and the other June 15. Team cost is $250 per day, with squads being guaranteed three games.
Head coach Vic Schaefer and his staff wrap the camp slate with the Individual Camp (June 16-19) and Position Camp (June 20-22).
The Individual Camp is open to players in grades 5-12, with the cost running $275 for residents and $200 for commuters.
With hands-on instruction from Schaefer, associate head coach Johnnie Harris and assistants Aqua Franklin and Brittany Hudson, campers will work on everything from position work and shooting to fast breaks and team practice while also dividing up and playing games.
The Position Camp runs $175 for residents and $125 for commuters, and it is open to grades 7-12. During the three-day session, campers will work on footwork, moves and drills at their respective positions before putting it all together in 1-on-1 and 3-on-3 tournaments.
