Youth Summer Camp
In 1996, the Sacramento Warlords and Chinese Community Church Basketball Program held a camp to improve the skills of their players. Led by Warlord coach Tommy Fanner, “Summer Hoops ’96” was a successful event that revealed a desire for a clinic targeting younger age groups. Subsequently, the Warlords Class of 1999 began to host an annual youth summer camp. Although the ’99 Boys would go on to graduate, the demand for camp remained.
A Summer Tradition
Today, the Sacramento Warlords Youth Summer Camp is a highly anticipated event where many return-campers (and some first-timers) enjoy three weeks of drills, games, and treats. Warlords players, alumni and friends serve as instructors to kids entering the first through fifth grades. Registration is $80 per participant, and includes a camp t-shirt and group picture. Space is limited and filled on a first-come, first-serve basis.
