Indiana University Northwest and the Office of Student Life and Athletics will host its second annual 2011 RedHawks' Summer Basketball Camp for Kids the week of July 18. The four-day camp is open to all boys and girls ages 6-13, and will meet each day from 8:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. at the IU Northwest Savannah Center Gymnasium, located just one-half mile south of I-80/94 at 3400 Broadway in Gary, Ind.

The camp's daily program will feature skill work, team-building exercises and drills, league games, skill competitions and a special guest speaker. The back-to-back (2010, 2011) A.I.I. Champion Lady RedHawks basketball players and coaches will host the camp's daily activities.

The camp's final day will feature a team tournament and an awards ceremony, and parents are welcome to attend. Throughout the program, instructors will address such topics as teamwork, how to set and achieve goals, the importance of education, and good nutrition.

There will be guest appearances by local players and coaches of note, including: former IU Northwest coach and IHSAA and NCAA Champion Pete Trgovich; Lady RedHawks Head Coach and 2009 and 2010 A.I.I. Coach of the Year Ryan Shelton; Lady RedHawks assistant coach and international gold medalist Loretta Soria (Australian Pro League); NAIA All-American Sharon Houston; NAIA scoring leader and all-time IU Northwest leading scorer Pete Trgovich III; IU Northwest All-Conference guards Nina Wills and Juliette Keller; and many more!

Registration is $40 for signups before July 14 and $50 thereafter. The cost for a second child from the same family is $35 before July 14 and $45 thereafter. Each camp participant will receive a RedHawks Camp t-shirt. Please note that space is limited and that the camp was a sellout in 2010.
