Emery, Hartsock to lead Provo basketball camp on August 2-3

The Cougar Alumni Basketball camp gives school kids access to two of BYU's recent greats.

An awesome opportunity is coming in early August for kids 1st through 12th grade when recent BYU greats Jackson Emery and Noah Hartsock direct the Cougar Alumni Basketball Camp.

Emery, BYU's all-time steals leader, will help teach fundamentals of shooting, passing, dribbling, and defense at the Provo Rec Center on August 2-3. First through fifth graders will go through drills, games, and exercises from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., with sixth through twelfth graders camping from 1-4:30 p.m.

There probably aren't many college camps better than one run by a guy like Emery, who was a state champ and state MVP in high school, holds the BYU steals record, and was MWC defensive player of the year. Add in Hartsock, who I'm sure will be teaching post moves, rebounding, and turnaround baseline jumpers, and you definitely get your money's worth.

Emery and co. will also spend time discussing techniques to develop a winning mindset and a competitive mentality.

More information can be found on the camp's website where you can register your child to participate. Vanquish The Foe encourages anyone with a grade-school hoops player to support the event and help your child improve their game.
