Nike Basketball Camp Mark Cuban Center/Thurgood Marshall Recreation Center Dallas, Texas
US Sports Camps and Nike Basketball Camps are thrilled to announce a new camp with Pro Level Training in Texas. Directing camp will be the coach and trainer at Full Throttle Basketball, Charles Stoker. The Nike Basketball Camp Dallas will run from a boys' camp July 7-11, and a girls' camp July 28-Aug 1. Both sessions are open for ages 8-16. Coach Stoker and his staff will guide a fun, fast-paced camp - for boys and girls of all abilities.
Pro Level Training's mission is to help enhance the performance of basketball players both physically as well as mentally. The goal of camp will be the same as that of Pro Level Training: to provide players with the skills and mental approach they need to get a leg up on the competition. A major emphasis of camp will be movement and working on the fundamentals of footwork, balance and conditioning to become a better and more explosive player. Additionally, PLT places a large emphasis on the importance of good nutritional balance for every developing player!
