Improve Your Basketball Game

Boys Basketball Camp is specifically intended to prepare you for basketball and beyond.  You will develop a foundation for playing strong, smart basketball through specially-designed activities, competitions, and games that will help build successful play habits. You will learn new ways to improve your ball handling, control your body, and beat your defender off the dribble to make the correct play.

The goal of Boys Basketball Camp is to ensure, through detailed and efficient training, that each player learns the game of basketball and becomes a smart, effective player. This camp will focus on honing strengths and giving athletes the tools to help them excel in every aspect of their game. Specifically, you will learn:

  • to show you’re coachable through eye contact and posture
  • to celebrate the success of your teammates
  • to respond to mistakes with composure
  • to speak to your team or class with confidence and poise
  • how to be tough with the ball and owning your space
  • how to be a play-maker without the ball
  • to pass out of pressure and traps
  • how to beat full-court pressure and double teams
  • to minimize unnecessary turnovers
  • to slow down to be a good offensive player
  • to understand timing and spacing on the court
  • how to finish strong at the rim
  • to use fakes to create advantage
  • to develop better body control, footwork, and balance
  • to develop hand-eye coordination and quickness
  • how to maximize your basketball training
  • and much more
