4 Night Camp Program

We do everything to assure each camper has the maximum opportunity for skill development. The coach-player ratio is typically one coach for nine players. Instruction is intensive and includes all phases of the game. The day is divided into six sessions. Two sessions are fundamental sessions. Two sessions allow the player to use the newly developed skills in game situations. The fifth session is devoted to one-on-one competition, emphasizing both shooting techniques and defensive skills. During the sixth session, videotapes are used, as well as lectures by the guest coaches.

Drop off/Pick up Times:

Check in time for all campers will be between 3-4pm on Sunday the week of their session. Camp will conclude at 4pm on Thursday, but we invite the parents to come early to watch the last games and also attend the BBQ and awards ceremony.
