Does your son want to be a great, well-rounded basketball player with strong fundamentals and a high Basketball IQ? The Basketball Skill Builder camp is meant to drill three sure-fire 1-on-1 scoring moves into campers until they are second nature. These three moves will build a foundation of skill required for elite Varsity High School Basketball athletes.
Why Basketball Skill Builder?
Competitive Games of 2-on-2, 3-on-3 and 5-on-5 will be emphasized throughout the week of the camp. Campers will learn to “read & react” under game conditions. Campers will also learn how to use and set screens and explore pick and roll scenarios. The camp also covers passing and dribble moves in detail.
- Stationary & Movement Dribbling
- 2 Ball Drills
- Chest & Overhead Passing
- Passing under pressure
- Ball protection
- Basic Shooting
