WJU/Nike summer boy's basketball camp begins July 5

Lance Von Vogt, athletic director and head men's basketball coach at William Jessup University is set to team up with Nike to host their summer boy's basketball camp. Registration is still open by visiting or calling 1-800-NIKE-CAMP (645-3226).

The camp is intended to help players of all abilities develop athletically, refine fundamental basketball skills and enhance their skill set at the post, wing or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play and more.

Von Vogt will be leading the camp coming off a number 23 national ranking at the end of the 2015-2016 season. In their second year after moving up to NAIA division one, Von Vogt took the Warriors to the National Championship tournament in Kansas City, MO where the Warriors defeated second-seeded University of Pikeville (Kentucky) in the opening round. Before coming to the Warriors in 2013, Von Vogt led Peninsula College to their first NWAACC Championship in forty-one years.

"The camp is always such a great way to connect with the community," said Von Vogt. "Seeing the improvement that campers show not only during camp but between camps utilizing the drills we give them is so rewarding. Everyone from the campers to a very talented coaching staff has a great time working hard and improving not only their basketball skills but their life skills as well."

Along with a week of learning, campers will get to dine at the nation's #3 ranked college cafeteria, Crossroads Cafe, and will leave with a Nike camp t-shirt and customized Nike workbook.

Camp will be held from July 5-July 8th from 8AM-9PM at William Jessup University's Warrior Arena. Overnight camp accommodations are offered. The camp is $425 for day campers and $525 for overnight campers.
