With 123 years of involvement in amateur sports, the AAU has never offered a basketball skills development program.
The AAU will conduct five basketball skills academies for boys and two more for girls during the summer of 2011. The two-day camps will take place in various locations, including Orlando, Fla., Memphis, Tenn., Charlotte, N.C., and Hampton, Va. iHoops is a sponsor of the academies.
The camps will have a famous feel to it, as well, as the Director of Skill Development/Talent Evaluation will be Anfernee "Penny" Hardaway, who played 14 years in the NBA and was a four-time All-Star.
The camps are open for players entering grades 3-11. Each player will be grouped by division, grade level, playing experience, and skill level. All of the academies will include academic performance sessions, life skills sessions, Combine testing and measurements, fundamental basketball skill training, conditioning regiments, organized games, and skill contests.
