About Summer Camp
Summer camp is a great opportunity for our school and for our basketball program. It is essential to start building relationships with our future players at an early age. In order to recruit for camp, we pass out brochures and forms to all elementary and middle schools in our district. We also make announcements to our high school students informing them to invite their younger brothers to our camp. Social media is used as well. The main purpose of summer camp is to motivate younger players to strive to be a part of the program in the future. We want to help them realize how fun this game can be.
Camp consists of skill work and fundamentals along with contests – shooting, free throws, speed dribble and 1 on 1. Campers will participate in 5 on 5 competition. We have a tournament on the last day of camp as well. Individual awards are also given out to winners of contests, games, etc. Current high school players in our program serve as counselors, and some of them speak to campers about their experiences as a student athlete and what it takes to be a part of this school and this basketball program.
