A Chance to Learn from College Basketball Players

As parents struggle to place their children in camps over the summer, an opportunity to be trained by college basketball players for a week should be at the top of the list for searching parents.

Pacific Lutheran Men’s Basketball team is offering a Boy’s Basketball Camp in August for those seeking the opportunity to be coached by a team who competes at one of the highest levels of collegiate basketball every winter. The campers will have the chance to spend all day with our fun-loving and experienced group of young men as the children learn, interact, and eat lunch in PLU’s Anderson University Center with the basketball team and staff.

The campers throughout the day will be guided through different series’ of drills that the basketball team does when they are in season. The players will also provide individualized coaching, as each player will be assigned a team to work with for the week when playing games and going through drills.

Also present at the camp will be longtime Head Coach, Steve Dickerson, who has coached for 8 years at PLU and 19 years as a high school coach in Ohio.

“The goal is to allow young people to associate with young players and try to teach them fundamentals,” Dickerson said. “We are establishing a relationship with them so they become fans.”

Alongside him is Assistant Head Coach, Brian Kovacevich who has been alongside Dickerson for 8 years and will be leading the camp activities and registration.

Details
Registration cost: $175.00 (save 15 dollars if registered before Aug. 1)
Dates of camp: Aug. 3 through Aug. 6
Age requirement: 8 through 15
Registration occurs through http://abcsportscamps.com/plumensbasketball
Expected amount of campers: about 100 so available spots will fill up quick.

PLU Men’s Basketball
The Pacific Lutheran Men’s Basketball program is dedicated to unifying the community through volunteer projects with local youth camps as well as hosting their own skill development camp in August. The team strives to bring the local Tacoma area together through basketball as their skills on the court are evident of their hard work. The team also takes great pride in their academics off the court as they have one of the nation’s highest team grade point averages among all Division I, II, and III schools due to their emphasis on the importance of a student-athlete.
