OKLAHOMA CITY – The Oklahoma City Thunder are holding a couple of youth basketball camps in March to provide instruction to participants by Thunder-certified youth basketball coaches.

The Hustle Camp is slated for Saturday, March 11 from 8 a.m. to noon at the Hive Sports Complex, 14414 N. Lincoln Blvd. in Edmond. The one-day camp is open to players from age 6 to 14. Instruction at Hustle Camp will focus on technical fundamentals, developmental drills to improve defense, ball-handling, shooting, and passing.

The cost for the Hustle Camp is $65 per camper and discounts are available for families with multiple campers. The fee includes a Thunder Youth Basketball T-shirt, basketball and water bottle.

The Spring Camp is scheduled for March 14-16 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Tandy Family YMCA in Tulsa. This three-day camp also will focus on technical fundamentals, developmental drills to improve defense, ball-handling, shooting, and passing.

We look to inspire a love for the game that creates motivation for continued play.”
