The University of Central Arkansas Sugar Bear coaching staff will conduct a series of youth basketball camps this summer.

There will be three camps, all on the UCA campus, coordinated by head coach Matt Daniel and his coaching staff: a ball-handling camp on June 6-8; a shooting camp, June 13-15; and a contests camp, June 20-22.

Camp sessions will run from 5-8 p.m. each day for girls entering grades K-8. Each camper will receive daily instruction in basketball fundamentals, participation in daily games and character training. The staff is committed to building self-esteem in campers regardless of skill level.

Cost per camp is $75, which includes a T-shirt. For more information and registration info, email or visit the camp page at,
