A unique basketball experience is coming to Carbon County this summer.
The A-Train Basketball camp will be held July 26-29 at Carbon High School. 14-year NBA and CBA basketball veteran Alex Austin will host a basketball camp for children ages six to 18.
Alex Austin graduated from Arizona State University and has played professional basketball in the NBA, CBA and some European and South American Leagues.
He has coached, developed and directed camp programs for professionals such as Pat Riley of the Miami Heat, former Los Angeles Laker's Star Earvin "Magic" Johnson, Utah Jazz Greats Thurl Bailey, and Bryon Russell and ex-head coach of the University of Utah, Rick Majerus.
The camp will cover all of the basic fundamentals of basketball; campers will get individual attention from coaches and competition with experienced players. There will be three sessions per camp. Children age six to 10 will meet every day from 8 a.m. to noon, age 11 to 14 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. and age 15 to 18 from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.
The fee for the camp is one hundred dollars and registration can be made at Carbon County Recreation.
