SOUTH HOLLAND | The South Suburban College Basketball Program is now accepting registrations for their summer camps in June.
The Bulldogs will host two camps — a Championship Basketball Camp from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. June 16 through June 19, and a Championship Shooting Camp from1 to 4 p.m. June 23 through 26 at the SSC Fitness Center/Fieldhouse, 15800 S. State St.
The camps are designed for boys and girls ages 7 to 17, and will be directed by head coach John Pigatti and players from the 2014 Bulldog basketball team. The cost of the Shooting Camp is $60 and the Basketball Camp is $105, with a special price of $140 for both camps. Campers will need shorts, basketball shoes, and a T-shirt or practice uniform. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase every day of the camps.
The main goal of these camps is to provide each individual with an opportunity to become a better player and to have some fun along the way. In order to accomplish these goals, the emphasis will be on the fundamentals of basketball.
The 2014 SSC men’s basketball team finished seventh at the National Junior Conference Athletic Association Division II National Tournament with a final record of 31-6.
Pigatti brings over 20 years of college coaching experience from a well-rounded background. He was also the head coach of the Five Star Basketball Post Development Camp where he instructed several top 100 high school players in the country. Pigatti has received six Region IV-A Coach of the Year Awards and has been named IBCA Coach of the Year.
