The Pistons Academy Summer Camp Tour continues this week with its first of two visits to the Franklin Athletic Club in Southfield.
75 Campers are expected to be in attendance, many of whom are repeat campers. “So many kids have enjoyed the camp to the point where they just want more!” Says the Pistons Director of Fan Development, Geo Thomas. “This will be another strong week so I’m hoping we can exceed their expectations.”
Last week’s camp in South Lyon continued the “Piston” excitement as many enjoyed the events of last week. “The Free-Throw contest was so much fun to watch,” Said Mason, the PA Voice of the Pistons who was on hand last week, “She said she wanted to win the trophy and she did! “She” is Grace Walters, the 3rd grader who was the #8 seed in the Free Throw Contest. Grace upset two #1 seeds in the tournament and took a #4 seed to triple OT in the final round.
This week’s camp will showcase Mason again on Friday as well as the Pistons Dunk Team, “The Flight Crew” on Thursday. There are still spots available for this week’s camp and you can register at the door, which opens at 8:40am. Franklin is located at 29350 Northwestern Highway in Southfield, just north of 12 Mile.
