Behn Basketball February Vacation Clinic - Triton Regional High School Byfield, Massachusetts
Behn Basketball Camp is coming to Triton Regional High School in Byfield for the first time this winter. This three day clinic is a well organized, efficient program for the development of individual skills and team play.
The largest and most successful basketball camp in New England, Behn Basketball has grown throughout Eastern Massachusetts for the past 19 years with a reputation of excellent teaching focused on fundamentals. For years we have operated a successful February Vacation Camp in Mansfield. After numerous requests from our summer camp families attending Govenor's Academy in Byfied for more camp throughout the seasons, we are coming to Triton Regional High School this winter. With two gyms and four full courts it is the perfect facility in a great location for this clinic.
Our experienced coaches create an intense yet comfortable atmosphere that encourages learning and development. The goal is for each player to leave camp with improved skills, increased confidence, and acquired knowledge on how to practice and succeed. And of course we have fun too!
