Girls Basketball Camp
The Girls Basketball Camp will be split into two sections: for the camper who wants to learn the basic fundamentals of basketball, and the camper who wants to play at a higher level. In the early morning session, both groups will be taught proper basketball warm-ups and conditioning. Then, campers will participate in skill sessions, based on the camper’s ability. In the afternoon, coaches will cover the technical and tactical skills, and then apply them in a game situation. Our goal is to vary our teaching techniques to meet the needs and abilities of each camper.
- Develop proper game fundamentals: shooting, dribbling, rebounding, and passing. (The baskets will be adjusted to teach proper form in shooting.)
