LAWRENCE, Kan. – Limited space remains for the second annual Bill Self Basketball Fantasy Experience, May 3-5, 2013, in Lawrence.
This unique fantasy experience involves one of college basketball’s most powerful and tradition-rich programs.
Last year’s camp proved to be a tremendous success, as Kansas Alumni and basketball enthusiasts came in to Lawrence from all over the United States. This year campers will compete in storied Allen Fieldhouse, receive expert coaching from current KU staff and former KU greats and enjoy elite social opportunities including an exclusive dinner at the home of Coach Self. For non-playing participants, the Experience offers the “Phog Allen Coaching Experience” that allows campers to see the inner workings of collegiate coaching at the highest level as you “match wits” with Self, a three-time national coach of the year who has guided KU to nine-straight conference titles, six conference tournament championships, two Final Fours and one national championship.
“These participants will actually be a player at Kansas for the weekend,” Self said. “Practice, film session, scouting reports, introductions, stats and there is a lot of fellowship going on as well. It’s a terrific group of guys but we need to get some more KU guys from the area. Hopefully there will be a few that want to join in.”
“Getting to know these guys at my fantasy camp last year was a real pleasure,” Self said. “They are from all across America – Washington D.C., New York, Chicago, New Jersey, California. Not everyone is of the same ability; we have players of all levels. This is a great way for the guys to network with some people that have been very successful. We’re looking forward to another great weekend.”
Positions in the camp are limited and are secured on a first-come, first-served basis. For more information go to www.billselfexperience.com, call 513-745-5850 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
