Campers will be split into six teams for the final two weeks of the camp, which will focus on game-preparation skills. A Buffalo Ball tournament will then take place on May 3, in which each of the six teams will be guaranteed two games.

“Buffalo Way” awards will be given out by Buffs head coach Bryan Pratt at the end of each day of camp for the team works the hardest.

Spring Training Camp will cost $100, and each camper will receive a T-shirt and final evaluation from the coaches.
