                   AUBURN HILLS, MI – The Detroit Pistons announced today the summer schedule for “Pistons Academy” presented by Kroger youth basketball camps which begin Monday, June 19 at Franklin Athletic Club in Southfield, MI. The camp tour will visit 15 metro Detroit locations, with the newest additions of downtown Detroit, S.A.Y. Detroit and Southgate.  A full schedule of dates and locations is below.

“We are excited about this year’s Pistons Academy youth basketball camp schedule,” said Geo Thomas, Director of Basketball Fan Development. “With the addition of downtown Detroit, S.A.Y. Detroit and Southgate to the camp tour, along with working in conjunction with other YMCA’s, our outstanding staff is looking forward to delivering dynamic basketball fun and instruction to kids throughout Michigan.”

“We are pleased to expand Pistons Academy youth basketball camps in Detroit,” said Charlie Metzger, Executive Vice President and Chief Marketing and Communications Officer for the Detroit Pistons. “Our continued commitment to youth programing helps provide a safe and inspiring environment for youth to learn, play and develop skills.”

“Pistons Academy” youth basketball campers receive NBA-level instruction and individual skill development in an atmosphere that promotes increased passion for the game. Three and five-day camp sessions are available for boys and girls entering grades 2-10 and range from $100-276 per camp. Each day consists of professional instruction and innovative skill development during the morning hours followed by full-court games and contests in the afternoon.  All youngsters participating will receive an exclusive Pistons reversible jersey, a personalized skill-evaluation report card, visits by Detroit Pistons’ personalities, and a complimentary ticket to a 2017-18 Detroit Pistons home game at Little Caesars Arena. All campers will have an opportunity to win awards at the completion of each camp day.
