While many Miami Hurricane fans have been focusing on Al Golden's Summer Football Camps held at Greentree Field on the beautiful campus of the University of Miami some may have missed the fact that there is another exciting Summer sports camp going on in Coral Gables just around the corner and down Ponce De Leon Boulevard at the BankUnited Center.
Registration is currently being accepted for the final four sessions of the five-day camps. Students in grades 1-7 can register for Camps 3 July 9-13, Camp 4 July 23-27 or Camp 5 July 29-Aug. 3. Camp 6 is Aug. 6-10 and is for students grades 1-12.
Hurricane basketball players and staff are on hand to coach the campers in drills and games, but also to be role models for the youth.
“UM players are heroes to these kids,” said Mike Summey, UM’s Director of Basketball Operations and Camp Director. “To have current players act as coaches and spend time with the kids is a great
opportunity for both current and young Canes.”
For $285 per session, kids receive daily individual instruction, game play, all-you-can-eat lunch, a camp t-shirt and a camp basketball. In addition, there are tremendous guest lecturers, many awards given with each age group and a championship series played on the final day.
The camps are held in The Fieldhouse on the Coral Gables campus, adjacent to the BankUnited Center, the home of the Hurricanes. Sessions run from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m. each day. Children of UM employees may receive a $25 discount, while discounts are also available for groups of six or more.
