Camp Director

Richard Ford

Directing our camp is SmartHoops founder and former Duke point guard Richard Ford. After a successful high school career, Richard enrolled at Duke and worked his way from a mere day to day varsity practice player as a freshman to a full member of the varsity team, then to a full scholarship player, and ultimately to a team captain – all under Hall of Fame Coach Mike Krzyzewski.

His senior year, Richard received the Ted Mann Award as the Duke player contributing most to team morale and also received the Captain’s Award for team leadership. Richard also received recognition in the classroom, being named to the ACC Honor Roll for outstanding academic performance. Richard’s senior year, Duke began its impressive run of NCAA tourney appearances.

Richard has spent much of his life teaching young players intelligent basketball strategies. He has run and worked basketball camps for 20 years, and has taught male and female players from second graders to D-I college athletes in a variety of contexts. For six years, Richard co-directed a national point guard camp, teaching high school and college point guards the finer aspects of point guard play in venues from coast to coast.

Richard’s teaching approach is concept-based. In addition to intense on-court instruction, Richard also holds entertaining classroom sessions to break down the fine points of the game. Richard reinforces his concept-based instruction with video clips, personal stories, and cooperative learning/teaching approaches.

Emphasis is placed on fundamental development, shooting, offensive moves, defense, rebounding, team play, and more.
