Current sixth-ninth graders in Detroit Public Schools should apply now for the Gregory Kelser “Shoot For Your Goals” Basketball Camp June 18-22 at Cass Technical High School, 2421 Second Ave., Detroit.
This free camp, set to run for five days from 9 a.m.-3 p.m., is being sponsored by the DPS Foundation in conjunction with the Sodexo Powerlink Partnership, which handles facilities for the school district.
Students must attend all five days of the camp—featuring daily basketball activities, mentoring, goal setting and life skills—and parents are responsible for transportation.
Camp participants will be selected by the Gregory Kelser Basketball Camp in partnership with Winning Futures and will be based upon application responses to essay questions, transportation commitment and administrator comments. Students will be notified if they have been accepted.
Kelser, the Detroit Pistons’ basketball television analyst for Fox Sports Detroit, is a graduate of Detroit Henry Ford High School, a former Pistons’ top draft pick and 1979 NCAA champion and All-American at Michigan State University.
