Middle schoolers, if you love basketball and want to gain experience training alongside real college basketball players and coaches, we provide scholarships each year for the Roy Williams Basketball Camp at UNC-Chapel Hill and the Wolfpack Women’s Basketball Camp at NC State University.
Applications will be available in early January 2020. To apply, you must be a rising sixth, seventh or eighth grade student at a qualifying school. Applicants will be judged on their academics, extracurricular activities and an essay.
Contestants are judged on academic records, extra-curricular activities and the content of an essay that must be submitted with the application. To be eligible to win, students must be in the sixth, seventh or eighth grade and have permission from a parent or guardian.
At the camps, students stay overnight in dorms on campus, learn fundamental skills that will help them excel on and off the court, and receive individual and group instruction from Division 1 coaches to enhance their basketball and team working abilities. Wes Moore, coach of the Wolfpack women’s basketball team, and Roy Williams, coach of the 2009 and 2017 national champion Carolina Tar Heel men’s basketball team, will direct the camps with the help of staff and current and former players.
