The Pistons Academy summer camp tour, presented by Kroger, makes it’s annual stop at the Ultimate Hoops Week in Bloomfield Hills.
Tuesday (Day 2) at the Ultimate Hoops Week marked the start of “regular season” play, as teams began their week-long quest to claim the Championship within their respective divisions. “We witnessed some incredible games on Tuesday and things are shaping up nicely for the rest of the week,” said Camp Director Bryan Bollin. “We had some very competitive games to start our regular season and it will be very interesting to watch each team develop over the course of the camp,” he added.
In addition to 5-on-5 regular season games, campers participated in the second round of Free Throw shooting. We also began our week-long 1-on-1 contest, with players competing in 12 separate divisions with hopes of earning a Camp 1-on-1 Championship.
Campers also were taught various concepts on Tuesday, including how to execute the pick-and-roll, keep the floor spaced and move without the ball.
