Boys & Girls: Grades 8-12 | Starts: 9:30am / Ends: 11:30am


OPEN EVENT IN NEW WINDOW

Description

The summer basketball camps went back to the basics in an effort to combat games fraught with deficiencies and a dearth of team play, elite boys camps sponsored by shoe giants Nike and Reebok stressed teaching the game...Reeboks elite player camp with 120 players...focused on balancing skill development (stations) they say the overseas player is more fundamentally sound. Thats why were doing more stations with dribbling, passing and shooting. Im always working on the fundamentals  and not playing street ball. 

 

Get ready for your upcoming season by working hard at your game and improving your fundamentals. Just playing will not make you bet- ter, you need to improve your shooting, ballhandling, passing, 1X1 moves and defensive concepts.
