Learning skills, working as a team, and having fun: that’s Michigan Tech’s Little Huskies boys’ basketball camp. It’s about the best introduction to basketball you can imagine—personalized coaching that emphasizes both individual skills and team play, with plenty of time for gently competitive games in the SDC Wood Gym. And Michigan Tech’s campus is a great environment for meeting new people and making friends.
Check-In: Monday, April 20, 3:30-4:00pm at the SDC front counter
Pick-Up: We will finish camp each day in the varsity gym, so you can pick up campers from there or by the main doors of the SDC.
