          SHOOTING STARS is one of the top instructional basketball camps in the south.  The camp program includes instruction in all basketball fundamentals, 3 on 3 league play, shooting competition, and two five-on-five games daily. The camp has two divisions—a division for high school age players and older (ages 16-21), and a division for players under 15.  International players are welcome to attend the camp.
          The camp is held each July under the direction of Glenn Wilkes, former Head Coach at NCAA Division I  Stetson University and now Assistant Director of the Nike Skill Academies. Experienced college and high school coaches and college players will make up the camp staff. 
          SHOOTING STARS is held in the new $10,000,000 complex at Lander University. The facility has four college size playing courts including the beautiful Horne Arena. The University is located approximately 65 miles south of Greenville, South Carolina. 
          All NCAA, NAIA, and junior college coaches are invited to send scouts to observe play at anytime during the camp.

Letter from a parent after the 2007 camp:


We just wanted to give you an update on Caden's team (school) camp. We left Shooting Stars on Sunday and her team started a camp early Monday morning. After they had won their first game, we had a break and her coach asked me about the Shooting Stars camp. I told her that it was by far the best camp available and Caden really enjoyed it and seemed to learn alot. Her coach said, "I can tell, she's much improved". Some of the other parents quizzed me on the camp and how I found out about it, etc...

Thanks so much for a great week of basketball and all the words of encouragement!
