KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Former Lady Vol basketball players Alicia Manning and Angie Bjorklund are teaming up this summer for the Aspire Higher Basketball camps.
The ex-Tennessee hoopsters say their camp will be different from the norm.
"Me and Angie have been thru so many camps growing up so we know what to take out of each one and what we didn't like out of each one," Manning said Wednesday afternoon.
"One thing we liked, is when the camps were lower in numbers and a higher camp counselor ratio. So we're gonna bring in some former Lady Vols and really interact with the kids, watch them develop and help them develop."
Basketball will be taught. And in heavy doses. But Bjorklund says it won't be all basketball.
"Most camps you go, they will just teach you basketball. We want to teach life skills. That's what Pat Summitt did for us and Holly Warlick," Bjorklund said.
"That's what we want to give back to these kids. Basically everything we've learned, like how to set goals, how to be a great leader, a great person, a great student, a great daughter. That's our goal for these camps."
The camps start July 13 and run thru August and are for various ages and skill levels.
Catholic High School, Christian Academy of Knoxville, and Webb School will host the camps.
