The Detroit Pistons announced the summer basketball schedule for kids. It's called "Pistons Academy" and the camp will take place in 15 locations this summer.

The camps began (today) Monday, June 19 at Franklin Athletic Club in Southfield, MI. Kids will have the chance to sign up at 15 locations in the Detroit area, with the newest additions in downtown Detroit, S.A.Y. Detroit and Southgate. 

"Pistons Acaemy" youth basketball campers receive NBA-level instruction and individual skill development in an atmosphere that promotes increased passion for the game.

Three and five-day camp sessions are available for boys and girls entering grades 2-10 and range from $100-276 per camp.

Each day includes professional instruction and innovative skill development during the morning hours followed by full-court games and contests in the afternoon.

All kids who participate will receive an exclusive Pistons reversible jersey, a personalized skill-evaluation report card, visits by Detroit Pistons' personalities, and a complimentary ticket to a 2017-18 Detroit Pistons home game at Little Caesars Arena. Campers  will  also have an opportunity to win awards at the end of each camp day.

For the second consecutive year, "Pistons Academy" will offer a "hoopsfest" to high school students entering grades 9-11. "The High School Hoopsfest" will take place July 10-14 at The Palace of Auburn Hills from 5-7 p.m. Admission is $125 for that.

Parents can follow the daily progress of camp and view live updates by visiting on the web or on the Pistons Academy Facebook page at Pistons Academy.
