Desert Vista basketball coach Dave Williams and Team Phoenix will be hosting a basketball clinic in June at Desert Vista, 16440 S. 32nd St.

The clinic is called “Back to Basics” and there are three different sessions for third- through eighth-graders that are four days each.

The first session is June 4-7, followed by June 11-14 and June 18-21. The first two sessions are from 9 a.m. until noon and the third is from noon to 3 p.m. The cost is $150 per session (or $325 for all three) with registration ongoing. Day of registration requires arriving a half hour early.

The camp is also working with the Kyrene School District and its “Back to School Drive” by asking all camp applicants to bring a $10 gift card from any of the following stores: Target, Payless, Footlocker, Famous Footwear, and $15 will be deducted from the registration fee.

Checks or money orders can be sent to Thunder Basketball Academy, 14821 S. 31st Way, Phoenix, AZ, 85048.
