Event Description

Day Camp

Our emphasis each day of camp is to work and improve the skills of each camper through drills, group lectures, and individual instruction. Teams will be divided by age. Our motive is to create a fun atmosphere while learning the basic fundamentals of basketball.

- Each day will have a camp theme and campers are welcome dress up. (For example, Mix and Match Day or Crazy Hair Day)

- Compete in contest throughout the week.

- Award Ceremony at the end of the week.

All campers must submit a paper copy of their most recent physical taken within the last year, either before the first day or on the first day of camp.
