FAQ

Basketball Camps

  • What do the camps offer?

    Our basketball training camps are skill development camps to improve elements like ball handling, shooting, defense, passing and overall game situational performance. Those learned skills are then applied to guided scrimmages to balance skill work and game play.

  • Do college scouts or coaches attend the camps?

    While coaches are frequently on campus to scout our boarding school student-athletes, they don’t come specifically for our camp programs. If you are attending a showcase, our youth camps serve as a great tune-up to prepare and be at the top of your game.

  • What is the skill level requirement?

    Our camps are ideal for players of all skill levels. Groups are divided by age and skill level, which are flexible and allow for shifts to find the best for each camper. We offer personalized instruction that allows campers to improve specifically in the areas they need, whether they are new to the game or highly skilled.

  • Is there any video analysis during the camp?

    For 5 week camps, campers are split into teams and have specific coaches that train them like an actual team. These campers review practice video, game video, etc. Parents will also receive copies of games.

  • Will I play games while I’m here?

    Our camps are focused specifically on skill training specifically and implementing those acquired skills into game play. All camps offer intra-camp scrimmaging, with our 5-week league also including, 5-7 games against outside competition or scrimmages against the other teams in the league camp. In addition, an optional evening session provides the opportunity for some pickup games.
