The Jimmer Fredette Youth Camp is committed to the development of fundamental skills and technique enhancement.

Fredette was recently selected as the No. 10 pick in the 2011 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings. Prior to be drafted he gained his national notoriety during his collegiate career at BYU for his spectacular scoring performances. Jimmer led all of the NCAA Division I in scoring his senior season with 28.9 points per game. On top of that he was honored with every major National Player of the Year award, including the Wooden Award, the Naismith Award, the Associated Press Trophy and the Oscar Robertson Trophy.

The camp is open to boys and girls ages 8-16 and will cost $150.00 per camper, which includes a t-shirt, autographed photo of Jimmer Fredette, camp photo and instruction from some of the top coaches in the Salt Lake area.
