Focus of Camp
Master Your Jump Shot
In today’s game, everyone has to be able to shoot the basketball. We will videotape your jump shot and show it to you. You will see the fine details of your shot and our staff will teach you how to improve on your mechanics. Often times, it’s a very small change that can make the difference between you being a knock-down shooter or an inconsistent shooter. We won’t just tell you how to fix it; we will show you how to fix it through video analysis.
Learn How to Lead
It is important for everyone to know how to lead. Whether you are an up-and-coming youngster or the senior captain on your team, you need to understand how leadership works. Body language, attitude, communicating with teammates, and helping create a championship culture will be addressed and taught to campers.

Attack and Finish
Learn to attack and finish like Russell Westbrook. Attacking is a mentality. Our camp will force campers to “think the game” while enhancing their mental toughness. Russell Westbrook has stated his energy or “motor” is so good because he has trained himself not to feel fatigue. He is relentless when he attacks the basket and he finishes with countless explosive moves. We will teach you how to absorb contact and get by your defender and you will learn how to finish with contact at the rim.
Back to the Basket
Who are the best players ever to play with their back to the basket? Most NBA experts will identify Wilt Chamberlain and Michael Jordan as two of the best. Wilt was a post player while MJ was a guard. If you want to be the best you can be, expanding your game to include back to the basket play is essential. Even Chris Paul will post up in today’s game. The reality is, if you know post offense, it will help you with post defense as well in case a guard tries to post you up. Learn to score with your back to the basket. Our camp focuses on building a complete player.
