Coach Cal starts contest for Father/Son Camp

UPDATED: Coach Cal has pushed the deadline back to 5 p.m. ET on Monday, June 19.

Kentucky basketball is a family tradition and head coach John Calipari is asking fans to show off that tradition in a new contest he’s started.

Coach Cal is holding a contest for fathers and their sons, offering an opportunity for them to attend the third session of the wildly popular Father/Son Camp (runs from June 30-July 1) for free.

Calipari started a new bucket list on his profile page on TimeSet called “Father/Son Camp Contest.” The details of the contest are simple: Submit pictures in the bucket list of yourself and your son/father playing basketball, wearing Kentucky gear or cheering on the Wildcats. Best picture wins. Entries are open until Monday, June 19, at 3 p.m. ET 5 p.m. ET.

Due to NCAA regulations, sons cannot be of a recruitable age. They must be entering the 6th grade this fall or younger.

Traditionally UK’s most popular camp, father and son participants are treated to instruction from the Kentucky coaches and staff, along with current and former Wildcat players through detailed skill work and competitions in the Joe Craft Center and Memorial Coliseum. Father and son teams will compete with fellow campers of appropriate age groups (based on son’s age/grade level) in competitions that incorporate skills learned throughout the camp. The skill work is designed to give both father and son drills and techniques to take home and continue working on together.
