TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Head coach Leonard Hamilton and the Florida State men’s basketball program will host its inaugural shooting and individual offensive improvement camp June 26-27 on the FSU campus. The camp is open to boys entering grades 7-12 and is designed as an overnight camp.
The emphasis of the camp is on developing post-play, individual shooting, screening, passing and ball handling. Special activities include lectures by Hamilton as well as current and former Seminole players. Trophies, t-shirts and certificates for individual accomplishments will be awarded and each camper will receive report card evaluations.
The cost of the overnight camp is $50.00 with four meals and housing in modern, air-conditioned university dormitories included.
Hamilton is in his first season as Florida State’s head coach after 10 years at the University of Miami and one with the Washington Wizards of the NBA. In his final season at Miami, Hamilton guided the Hurricanes to their second straight 20-win season, a share of the Big East regular season championship and the school’s first trip to the Sweet 16 of the NCAA Tournament. The Hurricanes finished 23-11, including a 13-3 conference record, and concluded the season ranked 23rd in the nation by the Associated Press college basketball poll and 20th in the final USA Today/ESPN poll. Miami’s 23 wins matched the team’s 1998-99 total and, at the time, tied the school record for victories in a season.
