Krzyzewski, former Duke stars highlight K Academy XI

Posted May 10, 2013

— Over 30 former Blue Devil basketball players, including a pair of former greats (Mike Gminski and Jason Williams) that have had their Duke jerseys retired, will serve as team coaches this summer to headline the 11th annual K Academy, May 29 - June 2, at Duke's historic Cameron Indoor Stadium. The camp staff will also feature 13 former players (Clay Buckley, Marty Clark, Chris Duhon, Nate James, Ryan Kelly, Reggie Love, Cherokee Parks, Mason Plumlee, Jon Scheyer, Kyle Singer, Nolan Smith, Jason Williams, Steve Wojciechowski and Brian Zoubek) that won a National Championship at Duke.

The current Duke National Championship coaching staff of Steve Wojciechowski, Jeff Capel, Nate James and Jon Scheyer will join Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame head coach Mike Krzyzewski to host and coach in K Academy XI - a camp for adults aged 35 and above. In addition, Duke Basketball stars from the 70's, 80's, 90's and 2000's will also coach again at America's first and top-rated college fantasy basketball camp.

The K Academy brings team-building techniques into an once-in-a-lifetime experience for the ultimate Duke or college basketball fan. Every camper will spend five days in Cameron and in the premier practice facility in the country - the Krzyzewski Center for Academic & Athletic Excellence - where they'll go from opening day tryouts to Sunday's championship tournament. Along the way the campers will play games on Coach K Court in Cameron and learn the inside scoop on Duke's four-time national championship program.

A lively social program, including a charity auction benefiting Durham's Emily Krzyzewski Center, completes the experience. All campers reside in the four-star Washington Duke Inn & Golf Course on the Duke University campus.

The enrollment tuition for the K Academy continues to be $10,000. The Academy is partially tax-deductible as profits go to the Duke Basketball Legacy Fund. The camp has limited enrollment of 88 participants - 80 playing campers and eight non-playing bench captains.

    Maybe the coaches can give 30k to this cause rather than to the players.

    If someone has the $$$$, what better way to donate to a wonderful cause, than to participate in this event.

    This has to be a fun time for all of those that take part in this Academy. Not many have an opportunity to be around all of those great players and coaches. Great cause.
