Our Camp Philosophy:
Our programs are designed to teach the fundamentals of the game of basketball. Any camper, whether beginner or Varsity level player, is welcome at our camps. We are a fundamentals camp. We teach the game and make it fun and keep it fun all week. We teach the same basic skills that we teach our scholarship level college players at The College of Saint Rose. We begin with the basics and progress each day as appropriate. More experienced players will be challenged at a more advanced level in our skill sessions.
Regardless of experience level, size or position, we work on every skill from running and jumping, footwork and agility, balance, dribbling, passing, shooting, both individual and team defense, rebounding, team play etc. We work on shooting multiple times each day. We teach the rules of the game as well. Each camper is placed on a camp team with a coach. In addition to skills and drills, Camp teams practice and play at least two games each day.
Each camper is an individual and we’ll work on the fundamentals of the game as well as confidence and self-esteem throughout the week. The goal is to give campers a positive basketball experience and help them develop new skills each day. Combined with that boost in self-esteem our hope is they’ll continue to practice the new skills they’ve learned once they get home.
