DET Ball

DET Ball is a summer basketball program in the Detroit area exclusively for 13 to 18 year old males. This camp will focus on the development of the players and will target players who don't get to play as much organized basketball as they would like.  No one will be excluded and there will be scholarships available.  The games are meant to have a street ball type of feel/environment, but still operate as organized ball does.  This endeavor is also a great way to bring an entertainment event to the city of Detroit as well as business and jobs.  Not to mention, it'll put the hoop circuit in Detroit on the map for players and coaches.  This is not a "one season" business. More seasons can be added, sports players, cities, etc.
