NEW ORLEANS The New Orleans Hornets have teamed up with the National Basketball Academy to host a series of summer basketball camps around the state of Louisiana, including week-long camps featuring Hornets Head Coach Monty Williams and forwards Carl Landry and Jason Smith.
The 13 week-long camps will be held in the New Orleans area, Westwego, Kenner, Gonzales, Marrero, Mandeville, Slidell and Baton Rouge. Each camp is open to boys and girls ages 7-16 and includes camp instruction from Monday through Friday (with the exception of the Baton Rouge camp which is Wednesday through Friday only), a free Hornets 2012-2013 game ticket, Hornets camp T-shirt, basketball and wristband. The total cost for each camp is $225/camper, excluding the Baton Rouge and Monty Williams, Carl Landry and Jason Smith camps, which are $150 and $275, respectively.
Each camp will feature expert instruction, special Hornets guests, live games of three-on-three and five-on-five, contests, giveaways and prizes, with an awards ceremony concluding the week's activities. In addition, participants in the Monty Williams camp will receive hands-on instruction from the Hornets' coach, the chance to meet special Hornets guests, a player camp skills packet and a team photo with Coach Williams. Jason Smith and Carl Landry will be active coaches at their camps, as well, and will provide special instruction and insight to participants.
