Lakers to hold 10th Annual Youth Basketball camp
By Sentinel News Service
Published March 12, 2009

The Los Angeles Lakers will conduct "Camp Lakers", presented by dazadi.com, a youth basketball camp for boys ages 9-18, this July in two sessions, it was announced by the team. The camps will be held for the 10th consecutive year on the campus of UC Santa Barbara. Session one will be held July 3-7; session two will be held July 8-12.

 As in the past, both current and former Lakers players and coaches will make guest appearances to help with on-court instruction. Previous players/coaches who have made appearances include: Kobe Bryant, Phil Jackson, Luke Walton, Jordan Farmar, Sasha Vujacic, Rick Fox, Derek Fisher, Brian Shaw, James Worthy, Kurt Rambis, Tex Winter, Jim Cleamons, Frank Hamblen, Bill Bertka and Mitch Kupchak to name a few.

 "We are pleased to offer Camp Lakers to young basketball players as a unique opportunity to improve both their skills and overall knowledge of the game," said Lakers General Manager Mitch Kupchak. "The campus of UC Santa Barbara is an excellent setting for a camp, and the experience is made even more memorable for the kids with an experienced coaching staff encouraging the importance of teamwork, dedication and sportsmanship coupled with instruction from Lakers players, coaches and scouts reinforcing these core concepts."

There will be no price increase over last year; cost of the camp is $670 per camper, per session for overnight campers (includes $20 refundable key deposit) and $470 per camper, per session for day campers. Net proceeds from the camps are used by the Lakers for charitable purposes.

Approximately 6,500 campers have attended Camp Lakers over the past nine years, and the camps have sold out every year. It is anticipated that this year's camps will sell out by late May. For more information, please call the camp hotline at (310) 426-6055, email camps2009@la-lakers.com or visit the Lakers website at www.lakers.com.
