Detroit Pistons star Tobias Harris will join the Pistons Academy Summer Camp Tour July 5-7 at the Boll YMCA in Detroit.
“We are truly excited to work with Tobias in facilitating a basketball camp at the Detroit YMCA,” says Pistons Director of Fan Development, Geo Thomas, “Tobias will be present for the entire camp and will engage in the campers as an instructor, coach and role model. It is going to an amazing camp!”
The Pistons Academy Camp Tour is in its 5th year of operation and although other Pistons players have stopped by, this will be the first time the Academy has worked hand in hand with a Pistons player. “Tobias is a true professional,” adds Camp Director Aaron Smith, “From the way he handles his game on the court to his passion and dedication to our campers. He is the real deal and we are looking forward to having him on-site this week.”
Along with Tobias Harris, campers will have a chance to meet Hooper, the Pistons amazing mascot, and view the Flight Crew’s amazing jumps and dunks. On Friday, championship games and awards ceremony will be streamed live so those who cannot make the last day can watch on their laptop or mobile device.
The camp will run July 5th through the 7th from 9am-3pm. Campers must pre-register and spaces are limited to the first 70 who sign up. Campers can purchase a pizza lunch or they can bring their own. More details are below:
