Robbie Hummel Set to Host 2nd Annual Basketball Camp

2014-robbie-hummel-basketball-campValparaiso High School and Purdue University basketball star Robbie Hummel is returning to the region to host his second annual Robbie Hummel Basketball Camp, running June 17-20th at The Fieldhouse in Merrillville.

The Robbie Hummel Basketball Camp will provide individual instruction on shooting, ball handling, passing, defense and team concepts. Competitive competition (5-on-5) will also be used as a training tool.

"It’s really fun to interact with the kids," said Hummel. "We play some 5-on-5 where I get to be the 'all time point guard' and it’s cool coming full circle teaching the kids just like so many others taught me during all the camps I went to."

Hummel played in his first NBA season this year for the Minnesota Timberwolves, starting in 5 games and averaging 3.4 point and 2.5 rebounds in just 12 minutes per game.

The camp will run in two sessions:

  • Session 1: Grades K-5, 9:30am -11:30am
  • Session 2: Grades 6-9, 12:30pm - 2:30pm

Cost is $115 for either session.

“The camp is very fundamentally based," explains Hummel. "It's taught by myself and other former college players."
