Summer basketball camp being planned

Do you have a basketball player who wants to sharpen his or her skills over the summer? Coach Quin McKinney is planning a three-day event for two different age groups that will take place at the end of the month.

Starting May 31 and running through June 2, the camp will work with players ages 6- to 12-years-old from 9 to 11:30 a.m. each morning. Older players ages 13- to 17-years-old will receive instruction from noon to 2:30 p.m.

The deadline to register is this Friday, May 13. Fees apply as follows: single campers at a rate of $85, a family of two players at a rate of $145, and a family of three campers at a rate of $205.

A portion of these funds will be used to provide drinks, snacks, a t-shirt, and a ball for each participant.

Applications are available at Swainsboro-Emanuel County Recreation Department and Hackett’s School of Barbering. Parents can also request an application by email; Coach McKinney can be reached at

Additionally, parents can pay their player’s registration fees by Cash App using the handle $ATAPFUNDS or by Venmo using the handle atap_fundamentals. Checks will not be accepted.

The camp heads into its sixth year with McKinney, an experienced and accomplished coach, at the helm. He helped lead Swainsboro High School’s varsity boys for several years, including their 2020 state championship.

Most recently, he helped lead the Savannah State University Lady Tigers, a Division II school in the NCAA, to a season record of 27–3. The women’s team won the East Division of their conference, racked up the most home wins in school history, received an NCAA at-large bid for the first time since 1993, and finished runner-up in the race for the SIAC championship. The Lady Tigers also, with McKinney as an assistant coach, ranked No. 12 nationally in Division II before the conference tournament and entered the NCAA tournament as the No. 8 seed.
