Larry Turner Basketball Camps return to Milledgeville

(Continued)

MILLEDGEVILLE —

Similar to years past, Turner plans to bring in professional players to help work with the campers in their development and speak about their experiences in getting to the pro level.

In addition to the special guests at the professional ranks, Turner also welcomes two youth organizations, Rehab Time and Ollie Lifestyle, which have partnered with the camp to mentor the young players and lead them in games.

“I always try to have some special guests come in and say hello,” Turner said. “We have some organizations coming down this year, as well as some pro basketball players.”

Attempting to keep the camps enjoyable for the campers, Turner looks forward to implementing change to allow the players to have the best experience possible.

“I try to bring in new people, new basketball drills, a new way of teaching, and keep it fun,” he said.

The current camp fee is $110 for the boys and girl’s camp, including ages 11-18, which will be held Monday through Wednesday, as well as the kid’s camp Thursday through Saturday.

Potential campers can write Turner’s professional team name, Apollon Patras, on the registration form for a waived late entry fee.
