FALL CAMPS & TRAINING

LITTLE HOOPERS BASKETBALL CAMP (CO-ED AGES 5-8)

The basic fundamentals of basketball will be taught in a fun, learning environment. We will be using smaller basketballs and lower rims to ensure proper form and technique. Motor skill development as well as skill work is also stressed. The goal of this camp is to give kids a positive introductory basketball experience.

A step up from Little Hoopers, in this camp our coaches will demonstrate and instruct on drills in all areas of basketball (ball handling, shooting, passing, etc.). This camp looks to develop strong fundamentals in a fun and exciting environment.

SKILLS & THRILLS PROGRAM (BOYS & GIRLS DIVISIONS, GRADES 3-8)

This fall, we will be adjusting our "Skills and Scrimmage" program, which will be a combination of our former Next Level Skills Training as well as supervised weekly competitions for all participants.  

The first half of the night will cover a variety of skill development (ball handling, shooting, defense, conditioning) and then we will transition into structured competitions to allow players to continue skill development.

The competitions/games will vary from week to week based on what skills were covered.  This will be done in small groups to mitigate physical contact with other campers.  This will give us a chance to work with players on specific game situations, as well as give them the chance to compete on a weekly basis.

 

*Fall program space will be limited in accordance with state guidelines to ensure safety.  Please see our Covid-19 protocols for details.

FINISHING SCHOOL (CO-ED, AGES 8-16)

The number one area of improvement for lots of players: finishing around the basket.  During these 10 nights of classes, we will cover the full variety of options for scoring at the hoop.

This will include, but won't be limited to, finishing with both hands, through contact, off either foot, floaters, reverses, etc.  We will combine ball handling drills and how to get to the basket in conjunction with the finishes, as well as options coming off screens.

We will be limiting sign up to no more than 4 players per hoop to ensure proper spacing and allow for maximum reps for everyone.  In addition, each player will receive a "finishes check list" for work outside of camp.
