The Detroit Pistons have released the summer schedule for "Pistons Academy" youth premier camps and specialty skills camps.
The camps are available for boys and girls, with each session limited to the first 140 participants.
Youths participating in the Premier Basketball Camps receive professional instruction and fundamental work during morning hours, followed by full court games in the afternoon. Participants receive a Pistons Academy jersey, a personalized skill-evaluation report card, opportunities to win awards, and a free ticket to a 2014-15 Pistons home game.
The Specialty Skill camps are a new addition to the "Pistons Academy" and place more of an emphasis on specific skills such as offensive improvement or defensive skill sets. There is also an all-girls camp and an elite skills camp for youths with intermediate to advanced skills.
