July 24 Update
It has been a long spring and summer but the Pistons Academy will be back in live business starting Monday, July 27. Our coaches and directors are extremely excited to be back in action as coaching is a passion for all of us in the Academy. Yet, as eager as we are to be back on the court, we know and understand what we are facing as we resume action. Our process will look a lot different this summer and over the next five weeks of camps, we will continue to monitor and evolve our camp process.
We have established a COVID-19 screening protocol based on the guidelines set forth by the CDC and the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs (LARA). Some of the most obvious changes will be:
- Camps will be limited in capacity – only one camper per 100sq. feet of gym space
- Campers will need their own basketballs in order to participate
- Only campers and staff will be allowed inside the facilities where we hold camps
- Temperature checks will be taken daily

We are also excited to announce the launch of the Pistons Academy Jam Sessions! Each Thursday at 11am, you can find new Jam Session episodes on our website. These videos offer skills and drills, viewer challenges and inspirational messages from our Pistons Academy Team!
Thanks for your patience and we look forward to seeing you on the court again soon!
