LEXINGTON, Ky. – Brought back last season by popular demand, the Kentucky men’s basketball team will take the John Calipari Satellite Camp Tour back on the road in June.
This season’s tour includes nine stops throughout the Bluegrass State. The Wildcats will branch out away from Lexington (within a 100-mile radius of campus, per NCAA rules) to bring hands-on skill instruction to the state’s youth.
Registration is now open for all nine camps with online registration (or visit UKathletics.com/camps) recommended as the fastest and most efficient form of registering campers.
The camps offer the unique opportunity for Kentucky basketball fans to learn from and interact with Calipari, the UK coaching staff and available Kentucky players. The camps allow participants to learn the game of basketball through a fundamental, intensive learning environment. They will also give individuals the chance to learn more about the game, including introducing drills that can be used at home.
All camps are open to both boys and girls ages 7 to 17. A limited number of spots are available for all camps and are based on a first-come, first served basis.
The cost for each camp is $99 per camper and includes a camp T-shirt, three hours of instruction with Coach Calipari and the Kentucky basketball staff and available players, competitions, autograph sessions, along with question and answer sessions with Coach Cal.
All camps will open sites one hour before check-in.
Once a camper’s registration is complete, the camper will receive a confirmation email with details of necessary paperwork needed (physical, insurance), along with a list of items campers will need to bring for camp. Any camp-related questions can be called into the men's basketball camp line at 859-257-9457 or 859-257-1916 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Full-time athletic trainers will be stationed at each site throughout the tour along with UK basketball staff members to accommodate any questions or concerns. It is UK's goal to ensure a safe and fun environment, which provides all campers the opportunity to maximize their Kentucky basketball experience.
The University of Kentucky’s camps and clinics are open to any and all entrants (limited only by number, age, grade level and/or gender).
NCAA rules prohibit payment of camp expenses (camp tuition, transportation, spending money, etc.) for prospects (any individual who has started classes for the seventh grade) by University of Kentucky boosters. NCAA rules also prohibit free or reduced camp admissions for prospects. If you have any questions, notify camp officials prior to attending camp.
