Camp Code: BKXDSB
Complete Skills: This program is intended to help players develop athletically. The individual camp is a great opportunity for young basketball players looking to develop and refine their fundamental basketball skills. This program also includes a curriculum for intermediate/ advanced players looking to enhance their skill set at the post, wing, or guard position. Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more. Our focus is geared to sharpening fundamental skills of basketball, including strength and conditioning. Each day at camp there will be a different skill of the day to touch on every part of their basketball IQ. There will also be an off court inspirational quote/message where participants will be challenged to memorize and apply to their lives. Individual (1v1) and team play (3v3 and 5v5) will be the focus to improve offensive and defensive strategies each week. Players will be evaluated and receive a certificate as well as having the opportunity to participate in Ballin’ Ambassador Shooting Skill Challenges as well as end of camp week tournament involving team play.
Shooting: This camp is for committed players looking to improve their accuracy, range, & quickness in shooting. All participants will learn the techniques that help them to become great shooters and scorers. All ages trained with their own age and skill level.
What to bring: Players need to bring a lunch, water bottle and a water bottle.
Upon arrival, all participants are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. In addition, campers will be evaluated and then split up into smaller groups according to age and ability.

What to Expect from a Mike Allen Camp:
When a player comes to a Mike Allen camp, they will experience much of the same advanced teaching and instruction as are offered at Nike Skill Academies and NBA workouts, but broken down in a progressive form that every player can handle no matter their age or skill level. Players will participate in a daily film session to watch the teaching points and moves they have learned. The film sessions summarize the true purpose of the camp – to teach players how to train on their own! Camp Director and head camp trainer, Mike Allen takes a hands-on approach with all of the players and is present at all times during camp. The ratio of coaches to players will never exceed 10 players to 1 coach, but even that matters very little. Mike's innovative teaching techniques are designed to make every player feel like they are alone with him in the gym.
The I'm Possible Formula:

• 20% of the camp activity is game play. This is where the attendees can practice what they have learned in a game atmosphere. Games are 2 on 2, 3 on 3, 4 on 4 & 5 on 5
