Summer hoops camps to be hosted, coached by pro player

It’s not every day that youth basketball players get to be tutored by an NBA star.

But that’s exactly what dozens of young boys and girls will experience at the 2nd Annual James Singleton Pro Player Basketball Camps, scheduled for June 10-13 in Carrollton and July 15-18 in Lake Dallas.

Singleton, the former Dallas Maverick and Washington Wizard who now plays for the Xinjiang Flying Tigers of the Chinese Basketball Association, will play an active role at both camps.  He will once again be assisted by several pro and semi-pro players, each of whom shares his love of coaching young and aspiring athletes.

“Last year’s camp was a lot of fun and we saw some dramatic improvement in each of the kids that came out to play,” said Singleton.  “I think that’s the advantage of having the undivided attention of guys like me that remember what it was like in the early stages of our careers.  We are serious about providing professional instruction on basketball fundamentals, and we’re determined to give every kid the confidence he or she needs to succeed at the next level.”

Singleton, who has played at every level and in nearly every major league worldwide – including Europe, China and the NBA – is committed to running a different kind of camp, for kids ages 8 to 18, at every skill level.  He has his hand in every aspect of the camp and provides his personal help and encouragement to every kid that participates.

The first camp will be held at IAD Athletes (2800 N I-35E in Carrollton, between Frankford and the President George Bush Turnpike) from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM, June 10-13.  The second, identical session will take place at the Swisher Courts (501 Swisher Road in Lake Dallas) from 9:00 AM – 2:00 PM, July 15-18.

The fee is $205 per camper for one clinic, or $370 for both camps.  Lunches, T-shirts and autographs are included, and discounts for additional campers from the same family are available.  Registration and more information is available online at, via email at [email protected] or call 310.330.6444.
