    EVANSTON, Ill. - Registration is now open for this summer's inaugural set of Chris Collins Basketball Camps to be held at Welsh-Ryan Arena.

    Three camps will be held, beginning with a Junior Wildcat Camp July 30 through August 2 and followed by a pair of day camps set for August 5-8 and then August 12-15.

    The focus of the camps is as much on the development of fundamental basketball skills as it is on general life skills that our campers can apply to life off the court.

    Each day, our campers will learn about the importance of sportsmanship and team play from Coach Collins, his staff and other members of the Northwestern Basketball family. Through station work, coaches will focus on teaching such skills as ball handling, passing, shooting and defense. Campers will then have the opportunity to apply these lessons in game play, where they will be grouped by age and ability.

    Each day session will conclude with a motivational talk from a member of the Northwestern Basketball staff. On the last day of each session, awards will be given to the daily contest winners and an overall contest champion will be crowned in front of the entire camp.

    Camp will then conclude with one final team meeting with Coach Collins.

    For registration and more information on the Chris Collins Basketball Camps, please visit the camps website.
