Every year from January 3 through March 31, EnergyUnited seeks middle school applicants for Touchstone Energy Sports Camp Scholarships. EnergyUnited awards scholarships to one boy and one girl to attend two of the state’s largest college campuses. Young women can apply to attend the Wolfpack Basketball camp at North Carolina State University in Raleigh, and young men can apply to attend the Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.
During the overnight camps, students will stay in dorms on campus and soak up lessons on the hardwood from the collegiate coaching staffs and student-athletes. Coaches at both overnight camps will work closely with each camper to develop fundamental basketball skills and practice playing hard while working cooperatively.
Leading the N.C. State women’s camp is head coach Wes Moore, his coaching staff, and current and former N.C. State women’s basketball players. The Carolina camp is led by two-time NCAA national championship coach Roy Williams, his staff, and current and past Tar Heel basketball players.
The all-expense paid scholarships, sponsored by North Carolina’s 26 Touchstone Energy cooperatives, provide funding for more than 50 middle-school students from across North Carolina to attend basketball camp. This is the 14th year the cooperatives have awarded young women scholarships to attend an N.C. State women’s basketball camp and the 12th year the co-ops have sent young men to the Roy Williams camp.
The young men’s 2017 Roy Williams Carolina Basketball Camp dates are June 11-14, 2017.
The young women’s 2017 Wolfpack Basketball Camp dates are June 17-21, 2017.
