Martin announces Volunteer S.H.O.T. Clinics

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (UT release) -- Tennessee basketball coach Cuonzo Martin announced Wednesday that the program is launching an inaugural series of one-day, statewide youth basketball camps. The initiative, named Volunteer S.H.O.T. Clinics (Statewide Hoops Outreach Tour), will include stops in Chattanooga, Greeneville, Memphis and Nashville this summer.

“Everywhere I go throughout the state of Tennessee, I’m always overwhelmed by the love and support of this program,” Martin said. “Kids start to associate with that ‘Power T’ at a very young age, and I think it’s important to reach out to the children of this state and nurture their relationship with UT.

“These clinics are going to be a great way to reach out and build on the statewide loyalty for the Tennessee brand.”

The Volunteer S.H.O.T. Clinics tip-off Monday, June 11, at Baylor School in Chattanooga. On Wednesday, June 13, a clinic will be administered at Christ Presbyterian Academy in Nashville. The Greeneville clinic will be held Friday, June 15 at Greeneville High School. And Martin brings the Volunteer brand to Memphis on Wednesday, June 27 at Memphis University School.

Clinics at the Chattanooga, Greeneville and Nashville sites will take place from 6-8 p.m. local time. The clinic in Memphis will run from 5-7 p.m. CT.

Martin and his basketball staff will personally conduct each clinic, along with assistance from current UT players and local coaches. Each clinic will consist of a welcome speech by Martin, station drill work, a speech on life skills and character building, a Q&A session with UT coaches and players as well as a photo and autograph session.

The clinics are open to all boys entering kindergarten through sixth grade (in the fall of 2012). Families can pre-register their campers at www.TennesseeSportCamps.com. The cost is $20 per child and includes participation, a basketball and a t-shirt.
