Skills For Life Basketball Academy Camp (August 1-5)
Central Illinois’ largest and most competitive basketball camp is the highly regarded and ever growing Curley ‘Boo’ Johnson’s Skills for Life Camp. Campers from 64 different communities attended this unique camp last year and the camp is expected to grow again this year. One of the most special aspects of the camp is getting to meet and form friendships with so many players from across Central Illinois. State Courier sports journalist Dave Reynolds wrote this article in 2015 about the SFL Camp… Coming from parts unknown to Curley 'Boo' Johnson Camp
This camp is a fun and competitive way to end the summer basketball season. It falls after the summer travel season and before school starts. Don’t wait around to sign up for SFL camp this year. The camp is expected to reach capacity well before August and there are likely some players that will miss the boat this year if they wait around too long to register. You can register and learn more about the camp by visiting the following website… Curley Boo Johnson's Skills For Life Basketball Academy Camp. Also, visit the SFL Camp Facebook page for much more information and pictures of the SFL Academy, it’s coaches and campers… Skills For Life Basketball Academy Facebook Page.
