I thought I would repost this on the new board.

If you know anyone who might be interested in attending the camp, or know someone who works with people with special needs, please pass this info along to them.
The Titan Club, along with Detroit Titan Athletics, will host the 2nd annual Titan Club Basketball Camp for special needs players on Monday, June 25, 2012. A collaborative effort of the booster club and Titan Athletics, this unique event provides a great opportunity for special needs athletes of all ability levels to learn and develop skills in a fun environment. The 2012 event will take place at Calihan Hall. Registration will begin at 8:30 AM, and the camp will run from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM.

Campers will receive basketball instruction, a tour of Calihan Hall, and will meet Detroit Titan NCAA Division I coaches and student-athletes. Any players 14 years of age and older may participate. This camp is for persons with trainable mental impairment (TMI), educable mental impairment (EMI) & other developmental or physical disabilities. Parents or guardians are welcome to stay on-site during the camp if they choose.

“The 2011 camp, held at Gesu Elementary, was a terrific experience for our participants, thanks to the collaboration of Titan basketball coaches, players, alumni and many great volunteers” said Titan Club President Brian Boyle. “For 2012, we expect to provide an even better experience with the camp taking place on Dick Vitale Court at historic Calihan Hall, the home of Titan Basketball.”

Registration for the special needs basketball camp costs just $15, which includes a camp T-shirt for the participant

Thanks to those of you who helped out on Monday. The camp went very well again this year. I'm sure we made Titan fans out of all of the campers. ... 20317.aspx

If you think you may want to help out or sponsor a camper next year, you can contact me now, or anytime, and I will add you to our contact list to keep you in the loop as early as possible with dates, activities, etc.
