WARREN — Greg Esler’s All Star Basketball Camp is scheduled for June 20-24 at Macomb Community College in Warren. The camp is for boys and girls going into grades 3-9, and it costs $150 per player.

The daily schedule runs from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Lunch will be provided by MCC at noon each day at a “reasonable cost.” Each camper receives a free basketball and a T-shirt. Campers will also receive handouts on drills and motivational ideas. Esler, the varsity basketball coach at Warren De La Salle, and his coaching staff will be on hand each day to work with campers on drills.

Campers will work on individual drills in areas such as shooting, passing, dribbling and man-to-man defense. Campers will also work on team offense and defense and watch film. Individual and team awards will be presented throughout the week. An awards ceremony will take place June 24.

Esler was inducted into the Basketball Coaches Association of Michigan Hall of Fame in 2012 and has 500 career victories, including five CHSL titles and one state championship (Lake Shore, 1994). He was also named one of the top six coaches in Michigan by USA Today.
