Post/Perimeter: This camp will teach post and perimeter players new moves and techniques to perfect their game. Focus will be placed on getting possesion of the ball, body position, leverage, creating open shots, and moves to use in the paint. This session is excellent for post players as well as guards and forwards who want to lean how to be deadly in the paint.
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.
