Overview

Motor Skills is a clinic designed to develop good hand-eye coordination and fine motor skills in young athletes. The camp will test your son’s skills and athleticism — putting him on the path towards great athletic achievement.

  • Body Balance
  • Form Running
  • Starting, Stopping, Pivoting
  • Passing, Dribbling, Ball-Handling
  • Changes of Direction
  • Speed
  • Jumping
  • Lateral Movement

Camp Counsellors

Camp Counselors will be members of the Northridge Basketball program: Assistant Coaches and senior members of the Varsity Basketball squad. They are hardworking, knowledgeable, and carefully selected for their attentiveness to young players.
