FMU Men’s Basketball Program Schedules Summer Camps

FLORENCE, SC - The Francis Marion University men’s basketball program will sponsor several summer camps during the month of June.

The “Four Great Days of Summer” Basketball Camp will be held June 15-18 for players in grades three through 10. The Gary Edwards’ High School Team Camp and Shootout will take place June 12-14, and an Elevate Exposure Camp for rising high school sophomores, juniors, and seniors will be held June 22-25.

The four-day Individual Camp will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day. The cost of the camp is $150, and it includes lunches.

The camp is designed to provide fundamental instruction in all phases of the game.

For the team camp, squads are guaranteed six games and will compete in a shootout on the final day of the camp. Games will be officiated by certified referees. The cost of the camp is $475 per team ($425 for a second team) and $95 for each overnight camper (includes lodging and meals).

The team camp will be divided into varsity and junior varsity competitions. An All-Tournament Team will be selected at the close of the camp.

All campers will receive a T-shirt.

The Elevate Exposure Camp is designed for high school players who want to improve their game and be seen by junior college and four-year college coaches. Participants will work with coaches from throughout the Southeast, and will also experience an NCAA eligibility and recruiting seminar. The cost of $250 includes housing and meals.

FMU head coach Gary Edwards will direct the camps. He recently completed his third season at Francis Marion, where he has increased the squad’s win total each year. He has coached at both the NCAA Division I and II levels and has recorded more than 425 career wins in 25 seasons.
