The Pistons Academy summer basketball camp tour, presented by Kroger, makes it’s annual stop at the Elite Skills camp at Franklin Athletic Club in Southfield.
Thursday marked the end of regular season at our Elite Skills Camp in Southfield and the campers are set for what should be a thrilling final day full of playoff action!
Campers wrapped up the final session of our free throw shooting competition on Thursday. All week long, campers have been shooting free throws worth various point totals. Aidan Wagner, Hamza Dabliz, Christian Gulli, and Charlie King have claimed the #1 seed. The top 60 shooters have been placed into the “Big Board” and the remaining shooters will battle it out for a chance to sneak into the competition as a #16 seed.
