University of Kentucky basketball coach John Calipari and his staff will conduct a series of instructional youth camps across the state this summer, UK announced Tuesday.

The 10 three-hour camps will be held June 20-24 in nine Kentucky cities.

The sessions for boys and girls entering kindergarten through sixth grade promise instruction in fundamentals and drills that players can use on their own at home.

Participants will receive a Kentucky basketball T-shirt, as well as opportunities for autographs and photos.

The fee for each camp is $75 per child. Online registration, insurance and medical information is available at UKathletics.com/camps. Contact the UK basketball office at 1-800-852-2875 for more information.
