Kentucky Coach John Calipari and Karl-Anthony Towns are teaming up for a Rookie of the Year Camp on Aug. 3 in Lexington.

The camp, for boys and girls ages 7 to 17, will be broken up into two 3 1/2-hour sessions starting at 8:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m..

Calipari and Towns will focus on all aspects of the game, including passing, shooting, dribbling, defense and additional skill work.

Towns, this year’s NBA Rookie of the Year winner with the Minnesota Timberwolves, will personally work and interact with each and every camper.

It will be the second camp set to feature a member of the NBA’s 2016 All-Rookie Team. The Phoenix Suns’ Devin Booker will join Calipari for a Shooting Camp on July 30.

Interested campers can register online.
