Charli Turner Thorne Summer Camps Set for June
May 3, 2007
TEMPE, Ariz. - Arizona State University women's basketball head coach Charli Turner Thorne will hold three basketball camps on the ASU campus this summer, beginning with a team camp June 8-10.
Turner Thorne, who led the Sun Devils to their first ever Elite Eight appearance in the NCAA Tournament this past season, and her coaching staff will direct three camps starting with a team camp June 8-10. The team camp is geared toward high school teams (grades 9-12) interested in the opportunity to work on team skills in game situations. Eligible teams must have a coach and a minimum of eight players. Team camp will offer two divisions of play based on skill level and numbers participating. Each team will play at least six games. Following pool play a tournament will be played.
An individual camp for players in grades 6-12 will be held June 11-14. The individual camp is offered as a boarding or non-boarding camp. It is geared toward players interested in playing at the next level with special attention spent on individual offensive moves and defensive strategies that will help players become the best they can be. Players will be taught and drilled everyday in the skills of shooting, one-on-one moves, position work, passing, ball handling, rebounding and much more. Various competitions and contests will also be held throughout the week. Those campers who stay overnight receive all meals.
Turner Thorne's final camp will be a day camp for players in grades 3-8, which runs from June 25-28. It will feature instruction on basketball fundamentals and on improving already developed skills. Ball handling, passing, shooting and defense will be only a few of the many basketball fundamentals introduced. Campers will be divided into groups based on age and ability. Games will be played during the afternoons with clinics being held in the mornings.
All camps will be run by ASU women's basketball coaches and players and will take place on campus.
