Year-round performance and world-class amenities

While youth athletes need time to rest, recover, and rejuvenate both physically and mentally, elite girls basketball players know that champions are made in the off-season. IMG Academy’s girls basketball camps give young athletes the chance to make a full commitment and get the most out of the off-season.

We offer both day and overnight summer girls basketball camps year round as well as special rates for teams and groups who want to book together. Sleepaway basketball camp gives young athletes the opportunity to board in Ascender Residence Halls with access to campus amenities 24/7 and a full team of residential mentors. This ensures campers get both the training and the rest they need.

FAQ

Girls 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.

  • Will I play games while I’m here?

    Our camps are focused specifically on skill training and implementing those acquired skills in games. Campers will compete against each other in intra-squad scrimmages and may get the opportunity to compete during the evening.
