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!

If you are truly interested in getting better as a player this Nike Camp is for you. The instructors were professional and eager to teach. I learned so much and would not hesitate to attend again, I learned so much from the experience. I told all of my friends about the camp and the most memorable moment was meeting the NBA player

I thought that Charles and his staff were exceptionally professional, prepared, enthusiastic and warm. The boys I took to camp every day loved walking through the doors in the morning and ran down to the gym to get started. When I picked them up at the end of the day, they wanted to stay for more, even though they were worn out from the high quality of work and instruction they had experienced all day. My son loved that the camp emphasized hard work, professionalism and a high level of instruction, while still being fun and positive. We will be in touch with Charles again during the year for more sessions. Thank you!!
