XU's Jackson will offer skills camp for area boys in June

Brandon Bass of the Boston Celtics, DJ Augustin of the Indiana Pacers, Mo Williams of the Utah Jazz and Al-Faruoq Aminu of the New Orleans Pelicans will be among the featured guest coaches for the inaugural Coach Dannton Jackson Basketball Skills Academy in June.

Jackson -- winner of 226 games and four regular-season conference championships as head coach of the Xavier University of Louisiana men's program for the past 10 seasons -- will conduct the camp June 10-13 at XU's new Convocation Center. The camp is for New Orleans-area boys age 7-16. Campers will learn skills to develop footwork and their fundamentals. They'll receive daily prizes, evaluation, autographs and a certificate of participation. Campers will be divided into age groups and compete in 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 games and a skills contest.

Price of the camp is $195. Visit www.djhoops.com to register online or to download a PDF registration form which can be filled out and mailed. Call (504) 521-7849 for more information.
