Both the Dwyane Wade & Brandon Marshall Sports Academy and the Cheerleading Skills Camp take place on Tuesday, July 22, and Wednesday, July 23. Boys and girls aged 7–18 attend both days. The full-day camps run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Every participant receives a T-shirt, Gatorade water bottle, and lunch on both days. For the dual basketball-football option, campers attend football in the AM session (9 a.m. to noon) and basketball in the PM session (1 p.m. to 4 p.m.). They will receive one photo and autograph from Dwyane Wade, and one photo and autograph from Brandon Marshall.
The basketball camp includes drill and skill stations run by qualified instructors, Courtology Institute study hall, film work, and a basketball tournament. Campers will spend time on both days with NBA All-Star Dwyane Wade, who will take two camp photos and sign two autographs for each participant. Female basketball campers will also have a sit-down visit with Chicago Sky's Elena Delle Donne, the 2013 WNBA Rookie of the Year.
The football camp also features skills instruction, drill stations, and scrimmages led by a team of experienced instructors. Chicago Bear and five-time Pro Bowl selection Brandon Marshall will appear at both camp days to assist with coaching. Marshall will also take two photos with campers and sign two autographs each.
During instructional time, cheerleading campers will rotate through tumbling, stunting, and cheer stations, all while learning techniques and fundamentals. The tumbling and stunting stations include training on inflatable air tracks—the same equipment used by Olympic gymnasts. Cheer campers also meet with Wade, who will appear in photos and sign autographs. On July 23, Miss Illinois Teen USA will visit the campers as well. The cheer camp is presented by Max Athletics and led by founder Ramon Beaulieu, who has two decades of coaching experience.
