GREENEVILLE, Tenn. --- Tusculum College men's basketball coach Jim Boone has announced the dates for his 2005 Winning Edge Boys and Girls Basketball Camp. The camp will take place August 1-4 and is open for boys and girls entering grades 4-9.

Jim Boone's Winning Edge Basketball Camp will run daily from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. All instruction and activities will be held at Pioneer Arena on the Tusculum College campus. Lunch will be provided by Jim Boone's Winning Edge staff and counselors.

"We feel the most important aspect of our Basketball Camp is the individual attention and positive approach to teaching that each camper receives," said Boone. "For this reason, we have college and high school coaches as our counselors. Our emphasis is on the development of fundamentals - such as shooting, passing, ball handling, rebounding, individual and team offense, and individual and team defense - based of course upon the age and skill level of each camper."

The cost of the camp is $75 for all applications post-marked prior to July 25, 2005 or $90 after July 26th and the camp will feature: Instruction by Tusculum players, staff lectures, motivational materials, a TC Winning Edge Camp Basketball, 5-on-5 competition, 3-on-3 Play and Tournament and a Camp T-Shirt.

Coach Boone is entering his first season as head coach at Tusculum College and has recorded 321 wins in his coaching career. The Pioneers are coming off their fourth consecutive winning season, which included 18 victories, a South Atlantic Conference Tournament Championship and a NCAA Division II Tournament appearance last year.

"We work very hard to ensure that our campers have a very enjoyable experience, that each camper has learned a great deal about the game of basketball and life, and has shown improvement in his or her skills and fundamental development."
