DAVIS, Calif. – Individuals interested in participating in this year’s Jim Les Shooting and Skills Academy or youth camp are encouraged to register as soon as possible to secure their spot. Both camps will start on June 17 and take place at The Pavilion.
Participants can register for the camp of their choice at ucdavissportscamps.com/mensbasketball/. Possessing over 50 years of Division I experience combined, UC Davis’ men’s basketball coaching staff will provide instruction for all sessions.
Campers will be organized according to age, size and ability for balanced competition. All participants are required to wear athletic shorts, t-shirt and athletic shoes throughout the duration of the camp.
Throughout the two-day shooting and skills academy (June 17 and 18), UC Davis head coach Jim Les and his staff will help boys in grades 7-12 learn proper shooting techniques. Even though station work will be utilized to create a fundamentally sound skill set, the focus of this camp is placed on individual mechanics, footwork and mental approach.
For an additional fee, campers will receive a DVD of their jump shot for additional analysis.
Athletes between the ages of 4-13 have the opportunity to participate in this year’s youth camp. From June 17-20, campers will take part in drills and live competition designed to improve one’s shooting, passing, footwork, ballhandling, defense and footwork.
Campers will also learn a variety of drills that can be performed at home to enhance their personal basketball potential.
Per NCAA rules, sport camps and clinics conducted by UC Davis are open to all entrants. Enrollment is limited only by age, grade level, gender, and capacity restrictions.
