COOKEVILLE, Tenn. --- Tennessee Tech head coach Steve Payne and his staff closed out week one of summer camps on Wednesday with the final day of individual camps. For four days, young men were coached daily in shooting, position play, dribbling and ball handling, team offense and defense, teamwork and sportsmanship.
A photo gallery of individual camp is available for viewing here.
With a successful individual camp in the books, the staff is now looking ahead to team camps coming up in late June.
The first and third sessions of team camp will be open to high school and junior high school players and will be held from June 11-13 and June 20-22. The second session will be open to high school aged campers only, and will run from June 17-19.
Teams electing to board during camps will be charged $225 per team plus $165 per individual player, and a fee of $75 for each assistant or non-playing manager or bus drive. Commuting teams will pay the standard $225 team fee, while players with meals will be charged $100 individually and players without meals will be charged $75.
Team camp will feature individual instruction daily with the Tech staff, as well as a hospitality room for coaches, a coaching clinic with the TTU staff, and the use of team meeting rooms. Participating coaches will also enjoy free use of the Fitness Center and free green fees at Ironwood Golf Course. Separate JV and Varsity schedules will be put together and intra-squad tournaments will be conducted in both the Hooper Eblen Center as well as the Tennessee Tech Memorial Gym.

Although these camps are owned and operated by TTU coaches and the use of their facilities is warranted, they are run independently of Tennessee Tech University.
