University Park, IL–(ENEWSPF)– Registration is under way for this summer’s Chicago Bulls Youth Basketball Camp, co-sponsored by Governors State University (GSU) and the Village of Matteson. The camp takes place July 12 to 16, at GSU in University Park.
The weeklong camp is a great opportunity for boys and girls, ages 6 through 14, to improve their fundamental skills in ball handling, shooting, passing, defense, and rebounding. Players will be divided into two groups, Rookies (ages 6 to 8) and Veterans (ages 9 to 14) so that every child receives appropriate attention and instruction.
Sessions are scheduled from 8:30 to 11:30 a.m. on every day of the camp. Participants will receive a Chicago Bulls Training Academy basketball, gym bag, T-shirt, player evaluation, and graduation certificate. The Chicago Bulls are the only NBA team to sponsor a youth basketball program.
Space is limited and registration will be accepted on a first come, first served basis. The registration deadline is July 10. Registration forms are available in GSU’s Recreation and Fitness Center. Registration information is also available by calling (708) 748-1080.
