Golden Bear Basketball Camp offers skills and drills this June and July

An announcement graphic detailing dates for two basketball camps at WVU Tech in summer 2021

Young basketball players will have a chance to take their game to the next level this summer at WVU Tech's Golden Bear Basketball Camp series, June 7-10 and July 26-29.

Hosted by the WVU Tech men's basketball team, the camp is open to players ages 8-14, with campers aged 8-10 playing and practicing from 9:00 a.m. to noon each day. Players ages 11-14 will play from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The day camp will be hosted in WVU Tech's Van Meter Gymnasium (350 S. Kanawha St. | see the campus map). The event costs $125 per player, payable on the first day of camp. The cost includes a camp t-shirt.

Campers will work with the award-winning team and Coach James Long on fundamentals: passing, shooting, ball handling, one-on-one moves and more. They'll also play games and participate in contest throughout the week to put their new skills into practice.

Students will need to bring and wear a face covering when not in play.

Each camp session can accommodate 40 players, so spots go quickly. Sign up for the camp online. Questions about the camp? Contact Payton Sturm at
