Brittanny Johnson, Head Women's Basketball Coach at Kennedy-King College, to Assist at USA Basketball Camp
October 16, 2014

CHICAGO – Brittanny Johnson, head coach of the Kennedy-King College women’s basketball team, has been selected to serve as an assistant at USA Basketball’s inaugural Girls Regional Skills Development Camp from Oct. 17-19 at the Romeoville Athletic and Event Center in Romeoville, Ill.

Johnson is one of five Chicago-area coaches – and the lone from the community college level – who was chosen by USA Basketball to assist at the camp as a court coach.

“This camp is a great opportunity for players of any level to improve their skills and to learn from USA Basketball National Team caliber coaches and an outstanding group of five court coaches from the area,” said Carol Callan, the USA Basketball Women’s National Team Director.

The camp, open to girls between eighth and 12th grade, will consist of fundamentals training, scrimmages and a three-on-three tournament.  There will also be educational sessions that will feature discussions on achieving maximum performance, nutrition, hydration and diagraming plays.

The 2014-15 season will be Johnson’s second at Kennedy-King.  In her inaugural campaign last year, Johnson led the Statesmen to a 20-7 finish, which marked the program’s best since it was reinstated in 1996-97, and a runner-up finish at the Region IV Tournament.
