FRESNO, Calif. - The Fresno State men's basketball team is offering a fun summer opportunity for hoopsters to take flight at the Bulldogs' Skills Camps on the Fresno State campus.

"The camps will feature a multitude of skill instruction, competitions & games," said Fresno State Director of Basketball Operations Nick Matson. "With the guidance of the Fresno State Coaching Staff and Fresno State student-athletes, campers will be instructed on a variety of fundamentals & skills including ball handling, shooting, passing, and competitions."

This year, there will be three camp sessions: Session 1 runs June 10-13, Session 2 runs June 24-27, Session 3 runs July 29-Aug 1.

Sessions 1, 2 and 3 are open to students in the second grade through 11th grade (ages 6-17) for $125 per camper if paid in full one week prior to the session the camper is attending or $150 per camper after that deadline. A $25 discount per camper is available when the application is received as a group of four or more.

Each camp runs from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday through Thursday, with the option of dropping off participants as early as 8:30 a.m. Pizza, water, soda, popsicles, chips and candy bars will be available for purchase or campers can bring a sack lunch.

Each participant will receive a t-shirt and basketball and learn from the instruction of the Fresno State coaching staff and players to improve and refine the essential skills of shooting, ball handling, passing and defense in a fun environment.

There will also be competitions and games between age groups with camp awards presented at the conclusion of the week.
