Sign Up Now For Bulls/Sox Academy Summer Camps

03/09/2012 11:15 AM -
The Bulls/Sox Academy announced today that the official summer camps of the Chicago Bulls and Chicago White Sox are coming to over sixty communities this summer throughout the Chicagoland area with programs for boys and girls from age five to twelve for every ability level. In its eighteenth year, these camps are designed for every athlete to have fun, work hard, and improve on the fundamental skills that are so vital to each sport.

Back for the second year, the Academy will offer a unique experience for all of its summer camp participants at the United Center and U.S. Cellular Field. Each basketball camp participant, along with one guest, will be invited to the United Center for an exclusive behind-the-scene tour, a special Q&A session with a Bulls' radio/TV personality and a current and/or former Bulls player. Past tours have included visits to the locker room and a photo opportunity with the six NBA World Championship trophies. All baseball and fastpitch camp participants will explore U.S. Cellular Field like never before. Each camper, along with one guest, will receive an exclusive tour of the field, a Q&A session with a current White Sox player, coach and radio/TV personality, as well as a photo opportunity with the 2005 World Series trophy. All baseball/basketball combo camp attendees will receive both stadium experiences.

“We are proud to offer this exclusive experience to all our camp participants. Beyond working on their game, these young athletes now have a rare opportunity to visit U.S. Cellular Field or the United Center and meet Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls personalities,” said Xan Pearson, Bulls/Sox Academy Vice President of Marketing. “The professional instruction and the opportunity to engage with a pro athlete set us apart from other summer camp programs.”

The five day White Sox Summer Camps are broken down into three different age levels for beginners, intermediate and advanced ball players. Professional coaches will focus on the essential skills of baseball – hitting, throwing, fielding, pitching, bunting and base running. Every participant in the baseball and fastpitch softball camp program will receive the U.S. Cellular Field experience, six free White Sox ticket vouchers, a Bulls/Sox Academy hat, t-shirt and graduation certificate. Restrictions apply to ticket vouchers. All athletes seven years and older receive a skills evaluation. The Top 25 baseball skills competition qualifiers in each age group will compete in our Champions Day at U.S. Cellular Field in September.

Chicago Bulls Summer Camps provide professional instructors who will work with campers on ball handling, passing, shooting, rebounding, footwork and team concepts. The “Rookies” session is geared toward teaching the basic fundamentals of basketball for young players just learning the game. The “Veterans” session focuses on advancing essential skills of basketball for the more experienced or travel players. Each participant in the summer basketball camp program will receive the United Center experience, four free White Sox ticket vouchers, t-shirt, Chicago Bulls indoor/outdoor basketball, duffel bag, and graduation certificate. Restrictions apply to ticket vouchers. All athletes will receive a skills evaluation. The top skills scores in each age group will compete for the Grand Championship on the United Center court at our annual Champions Day event.
