Sport Specific One Week Camps:
Bill Wennington Basketball Camp - Bill Wennington, former Chicago Bull, will provide instruction to 3rd - 6th graders in the fundamentals of basketball with emphasis on the skills of shooting, ball handling, passing and footwork. Discipline and skill development will be stressed; therefore players must be prepared for a great deal of drill work. The camp will spend the mornings teaching the proper fundamentals to each child while improving their game, while the afternoon will be spent focusing on game play. The day will be split with a lunch break so each player should bring their own peanut free sack lunch and drink. Proper clothing is important for the workout - gym shorts, T-shirt, sneakers & 2 pairs of socks. For more information contact Anthony Anaszewicz, Program Manager at 847-810-3945.
