Continuing our tradition of many years of great summer basketball camps, the largest and longest running basketball camp returns this summer in an online format starting on Monday, June 22 for grades 2-12.
While the coronavirus pandemic has significantly impacted all our lives, and will continue to do so for the foreseeable future, we want to provide some sense of normalcy for our youth. With so many leagues, practices, and competitions on hold or cancelled, we know it’s tough on young athletes.
But rather than focus on what we are missing, the coaches at N.O.D., Seton Catholic High School, and Fort Lewis College see this as a unique opportunity for kids to really focus on getting better at the fundamentals of their sport. We are NOT cancelling our summer basketball camps; we are just modifying how we will run them.
All your child will need is a ball and if possible a hoop (we can make some adjustments for those without a hoop).
Every 30 min coaches will be checking in live with the players through video. We’ll provide the campers live instruction, and then give them 15-20 minutes to practice on their own.
We will be sending out daily emails during camp to provide the content and will use Zoom and/or Instagram Live to share live content!!!
Camp content will be on a website and sent to the email address you register with.
Skills we will work on:
*Shooting – Form shooting, post shooting, game shots, triple threat shooting
*Dribbling – stationary and on the move
*Defense – Stance, quickness, communication
*Passing – stationary and on the move
*Footwork – how to pivot in various scenarios (post moves, boxing out, screening)
*Strength and agility exercises
*Shooting and ball handling contests
*Life skills – confidence, mental toughness, nutrition, and leadership
At the end of each day, we’ll allow the kids time to ask questions about anything from the day, or what they want to know about the coaches.
We accept campers of all basketball abilities, from beginner to experienced. We’ll make as much effort as we can to connect to each camper despite the social distancing required.
All campers will receive access to exclusive skills videos, a camp t-shirt, and post-camp workout handouts.
We hope we get the chance to be a bright spot in your child’s summer this year. Also, since we won't be in a gym, you are welcome to forward this email on to friends and family around the country who have kids who are interested. Contact us if you have questions!
