TALLAHASSEE, Fla. –
Florida State University men’s basketball coach Leonard Hamilton will hold two sessions of his annual basketball camp for boy’s on the FSU campus this summer. The camp dates are June 24-27 (individual skills/day camp) and June 27-30 (team camp).
The individual skills camp is open to boys ages 6-18. The emphasis of the camp is on developing basic fundamentals of shooting, dribbling, screening, passing and defense. Special activities include lectures by Hamilton and current and former Seminole players. Trophies and certificates for individual accomplishments will be awarded and each camper will receive report card evaluations.
The team camp is for boys entering grades 9-12. The primary emphasis of the camp is on game play. Two divisions will be incorporated and all teams will play a minimum of eight games. This camp is designed for both resident (overnight) and commuter (daily) campers.
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.
