AUSTIN, Texas – The 2011 Gallaudet University boys’ basketball summer camp is set to tip-off on Monday, June 27, at the Texas School for the Deaf and run through Saturday, July 2. The boys’ basketball camp is being run by Gallaudet University men’s basketball coach Jeb Barber and is geared towards players ages 12 to 18 who are deaf, hard of hearing or hearing. This is the third summer sport camp being offered by GU, all three have been hosted at Texas School for the Deaf. The two volleyball camps (setters and hitters, fundamentals) finished up this past week.
The boys’ basketball camp currently has 78 registered campers representing 15 different states including California, Colorado, Florida, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Louisiana, Maryland, Michigan, Nebraska, New York, Ohio, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.
“I am very excited to have the opportunity to spend some time teaching these campers at TSD. I look forward to seeing the improvement that is made from the first day until the end of the camp,” said Barber. “We have a great staff of former GU alumni and current players assembled from all over the country, without their efforts this camp would not be possible. I want to thank TSD’s staff and administration for allowing us the opportunity to use their facilities. I want to especially thank Chris Hamilton for his instrumental part in bringing the GU basketball camp to Texas, his tireless work has made this possible.”
The total camper total for the three GU sport camps this summer is 136.
