Taking place at the Friar's Club in Cincinnati, this camp is designed to encourage dads and father figures alike to take an active role in their child’s life; stressing the importance of spending time with them and participating in fun activities like playing basketball. The one day camp will promote the basic fundamentals of basketball (shooting, ball handling, passing, defense,rebounding, and offensive moves). All campers and their father figures will be playing ball, so please wear comfortable athletic clothing!
Shannon Minor, NKU and Greater Cincinnati Basketball Hall-of-Famer, developed this camp in memory of his father, Pete Minor, who lost his life in April 2011. Pete was an excellent husband, father, grandfather, coach and friend who instilled discipline, work ethic and a positive attitude to everyone he met. Pete enjoyed sports and working/playing with children as well as helping others who were less fortunate. Many of Shannon’s favorite memories are of the hours he spent on the court with Pete rebounding for him. Shannon designed this camp in hopes that more father figures will enthusiastically participate in their kid’s life creating memories and experiences, similar to the ones Shannon has of his dad, they could treasure for a lifetime.
All campers and their father figure will receive a t-shirt and dinner. Additionally campers will take home a
basketball and a photo of them with their father figure. Father figures will have a Q&A session with a well-known former college basketball player or college coach. Raffle tickets will be available for purchase.
All proceeds of the Third Annual Pete Minor Father/Child Basketball Camp are generously being donated to Kicks For Kids. Thus furthering Shannon and Pete’s desire for strong family bonds and helping the less fortunate.
