DURHAM, N.C. – Registration is now open for K Academy XII (May 28 – June 1) – a one of a kind Duke basketball experience for adults aged 35 and above. The current Duke staff of Jeff Capel, Nate James and Jon Scheyer will join Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame head coach Mike Krzyzewski to host and coach this year’s festivities at historic Cameron Indoor Stadium.
Over 30 former Blue Devil basketball players, including stars for the 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, 00’s and 2010’s, will also coach at America's first and top-rated college fantasy basketball camp. Among the former players expected to return are National Championship winners Grant Hill, Christian Laettner, Jason Williams, Kyle Singler, Nolan Smith, Chris Duhon along with a host of other Duke basketball legends.
The K Academy brings team-building techniques into an once-in-a-lifetime experience for the ultimate Duke or college basketball fan. Every camper will spend five days in Cameron Indoor Stadium and in the premier practice facility in the country - the Krzyzewski Center for Academic & Athletic Excellence - where they'll go from opening day tryouts to Sunday's championship tournament. Along the way the campers will play games on Coach K Court in Cameron and learn the inside scoop on Duke's four-time national championship program.
A lively social program, including a charity auction benefiting Durham's Emily Krzyzewski Center, completes the experience. All campers reside in the four-star Washington Duke Inn & Golf Course on the Duke University campus.
The enrollment tuition for the K Academy continues to be $10,000. The Academy is partially tax-deductible as profits go to the Duke Basketball Legacy Fund. The camp has limited enrollment of 88 participants - 80 playing campers and eight non-playing bench captains.
