US Sports Camps and Nike Basketball Camps are thrilled to add the Legacy High School to our Nike Basketball Camp family. Directing the three day camp at the Legacy High School will be Terrence "TJ" Jones of Ultimate Champions Basketball. Camp will run from July 25-27, 2014 for boys and girls ages 8-17.

Nike Basketball Camps are pleased to present the Ultimate Champions philosophy: In order to be successful there has to be a strong foundation. If a builder is building a house, he must have a strong foundation in order for the house to stand properly over time. Well, the same is for basketball. There must be a strong foundation in fundamentals for continuous individual improvement.  In addition to an emphasis on skill development, camp will also aim to improve each players athleticism and explosiveness.

Highlights Include

  • Talented staff of coaches experienced in teaching basketball fundamentals
  • Wide range of skill development drills
  • In-depth analysis of each player's conditioning and footwork
  • Discussion of nutritional goals and off-court activities to benefit on-court game

Camp Details

Complete Skills: Camp is designed to help young players develop their fundamental skills and work on their athleticism. Camp will focus on offensive and defensive skill development through a competitive yet fun and encouraging environment. All players are encouraged to work had and make the most out of the opportunity to learn from an experienced and talented coaching staff. Each camper will learn skills at each position on the basketball court - our goal is for each camper to develop an all-around game!

Additional emphasis is placed on fundamental development in core basketball skills: shooting, dribbling, passing, moving without the ball, defensive stance, defensive team movement and more.

Upon arrival, all players are evaluated by the staff so that their own instructional needs can be addressed throughout the week. Players will be grouped by age and ability.

Great camp!

Overall the Nike was a great experience for my child. We have participated in many other camps before. The instructors at each training station took the time to make sure each child understood what was being taught and how this would benefit them in a game. Also each instructor would work with each child to increase their individual moral and ensure them with work they would get it down. Other camps I've had my child go to I the past seem to just want as many kids to sign up to benefit them financial. Instead of looking out for the players benefit.
