Louisville Parks and Recreation publicizes partnership with Robbie Valentine free of charge three-day youth basketball camp


With the support of sponsors, local sports legend Robbie Valentine will be hosting another free 3-day youth basketball camp at KFC YUM! Center. During this free camp, aimed at youth of all skill levels, participants will learn the basics of basketball and the principles of teamwork and personal responsibility.

“I am blessed to be at KFC Yum! to be allowed to work! Center, which I think is the best arena in the world, every day,” Valentine said. “My goal is to give children that opportunity whenever I can. They can come to the arena, learn about basketball, take life lessons home, and have fun.”

In addition to learning on-court skills, several keynote speakers from the local basketball community will be in attendance to mentor campers and teach invaluable life skills.

“Robbie has made a significant contribution to children through his leadership of these camps and his various endeavors for more than two decades,” said Mayor Greg Fischer. “Thousands of children across two generations have attended Robbie’s camps and they have learned about basketball, healthy habits, how to be a good teammate, son and daughter, and a productive member of the community. We really appreciate the partnership with Robbie and the sponsors who made this program possible.”

The sports camp will take place from 27th to 29th June from 5pm to 8pm and is open to young people aged 5 to 14. To register click here or visit bestparksever.com and click on “Robbie Valentine Basketball Camp” in the green box. Participants are encouraged to wear appropriate basketball attire.
