It is my 13th year as Head Basketball Coach at the University of Arkansas. There has been tremendous growth in individual interest as well as skill development in the State of Arkansas. We must reach out to our youth and help lay down the foundation by teaching the fundamental techniques in all phases of the game. This has always been my philosophy at the Nolan Richardson Basketball Camp.
For the past 13 years, our camp has been one of the finest instructional camps in the country. An individual must practice hard each day to1994 National Coach of The Year
improve as a basketball player from one year to the next. Since young people mature at different rates, it is imperative to work on the fundamentals and learn to play more than one position. My own players work daily on simple drills and skills because repetition is the key to improvement. Our camp atmosphere provides a learning environment as coaches motivate and work daily with each camper.
I look forward to working with you and encourage you to attend the 1998 Nolan Richardson Basketball Camp with the willingness to learn.

Campers will be served an abundance of wholesome meals. Breakfast, lunch and dinner will be served to overnight campers. Day campers will be provided lunch and dinner.
Discipline & Supervision
The Nolan Richardson Basketball Camp is one of the finest instructional camps in the country. We are proud that our campers adhere to set guidelines and rules. We aim to create an environment that will enhance their learning experience and give
them a positive attitude which is essential in playing a TEAM game!
Campers are not allowed to date, ride in cars, or smoke while at camp, nor will they be allowed to be off campus unless with an organized and supervised camp group. All visitors must secure permission through the Camp Director. Early departures must furnish written parental sanction to Camp Director prior to start of camp. Campers will be supervised by the coaches at all times.
Any serious violations such as damage or other behavior deemed detrimental to the camp will result in immediate dismissal. No refunds will be made when such action occurs.
This camp will have a coach to camper ratio of 10-1. There will be coaches staying on each floor of the dormitory to ensure a safe environment.
