2015 Camps Canceled
Men's Hoops: June Skills Camps Canceled
The Tennessee men's basketball coaching staff announced Wednesday that it is canceling its June Skills Camps.
Due to the recent coaching staff transition, head coach Rick Barnes and his staff have spent the majority of spring focused on recruiting, scheduling and the completion of the support staff.
"We intend to resume hosting the annual Tennessee skills camps next summer," Barnes said. "For those families who had registered for camp, we regret the change of plans. But we don't feel comfortable conducting the camps if our staff isn't able to put the necessary time in and have a true daily presence."
Full refunds will be issued to all families who had pre-registered. The staff still plans to offer those families the traditional "camp night" promotion for a Tennessee basketball home game next season. That information will be shared, via email, later this fall.
Anyone with additional camp questions may call the Tennessee basketball office at 865-974-1207 or E-mail Mbbcamp@utk.edu.
The Tennessee Basketball Camps are designed to help each camper improve their skills through individual instruction and team concept building in a fun and competitive atmosphere.
Campers will benefit immensely by participating in many of the same skill development drills that the Tennessee coaching staff utilizes to improve the skills of current Vol players. With the help of former Vol players and an elite camp staff, each camper will receive individualized attention during drills, games and camp contests. In addition, our coaching staff takes great pride in helping each camper not only become a great player on the floor but off the floor as well. This is evident by the educational lectures done each day by our current Vol coaches and players on things such as academics, bullying, respect and hard work.
Each camp participant will receive a Tennessee Basketball T-Shirt. They will have the chance to win numerous prizes and the opportunity to get autographs from current UT student-athletes.
