It's about time for young basketball enthusiasts in Cayman to lace up their shoes and get ready to train with some of the best players and coaches in the world.

The dates have been set for the 2024 Camana Bay Basketball Camp, which annually brings down NBA players as well as coaches who have instructed at both the professional and collegiate level.

This year's camp is set for 22-26 July at the Arts & Recreation Centre. Boys and girls ages 7 to 12 will have camp from 8:30 a.m. to noon, while camp will run from 12:30-4 p.m. for campers ages 12-17. The cost is CI$250 to register.

An announcement on the players and coaches participating in this year's event will be announced soon.

The list of those who have participated in the past is an impressive one.

Easily the most accomplished player to participate is former eight-time NBA All-Star Vince Carter, who has recently learned he will be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. He played parts of 24 seasons in the NBA with the Toronto Raptors, New Jersey Nets, Orlando Magic, Phoenix Suns, Dallas Mavericks, Memphis Grizzlies, Sacramento Kings and Atlanta Hawks. He came to the camp in 2010.

Former Magic player Nick Anderson also earned an all-star appearance. He participated in the camp in 2009. A number of active NBA players have also participated, including Tobias Harris (76ers), Ed Davis (Trail Blazers), Al-Farouq Aminu (Knicks), Cody Zeller (Hornets), Royce O'Neale (Jazz), Dwayne Bacon (Knicks) and Jeremy Sochan (Spurs).
