Summer 2011 Basketball Camp
July 18 - 22, 12:30 – 3:30 p.m.
For ages 12 - 15 (entering grades 6, 7, 8, 9)
During the afternoon sessions of this week-long program, campers will focus on the fundamentals of the game: ball-handling skills, mastering the lay-up, developing proper shooting form, various forms of passing, rebounding and, most importantly, learning to play as a team. In addition to skills-building drills, campers will also scrimmage often, to create “real-game” situations.
We hope campers will discover the joy that playing basketball can bring, whether participants are just shooting around by themselves or streaking down court with teammates to score on a fast break!
