Camp Details

Coach Rivas designs his camps so that the day-to-day camp routine is comprised of the following five categories: 

Warm-up: Foam Roll/Static Stretch/Stabilization/Core & Balance/Dynamic Warm-Up/Injury Prevention   -- Warming up properly is the #1 thing you can do to prevent injury. We go to great lengths to make sure your body is properly stretched and stabilized before we begin training.

SAQ Attack: Speed/Quickness/Explosion/Footwork/Agility/Strength  -- We will teach you the proper techniques of movement, change of direction, acceleration, deceleration, and jump/landing techniques.

Footwork: Catch & Shoot/Half Court Attack/Catch Attack/Dribble Attack/Transition Attack/Finishing Moves -- The quality of your: catching, passing, shooting and ball handling is directly related to the quality of your footwork. Our workouts are literally “built from the ground up.”

Conditioning: With Out Ball/With Ball/Combination/Competitive Drills/Controlled Scrimmage -- Once a habit has been formed it must be applied when tired and at game speeds. Out workouts conclude with an opportunity to perform learned skills in a competitive setting.

Cool Down: Foam Roll/Static Stretch/Core Stabilization/Partner Stretch/Band Stretch -- Cool down is a period vital to the regenerative process. When basketball is long done, you will still have your body to live with. A little time now will pay great dividends later in life.

Camper Reviews

  • 5/5.

The workout guidelines Coach Rivas provided are exceptional. Kids these days don't think of the "other side" of preparing to play basketball (i.e., warm-ups, drills, conditioning); they just want to play. Well, that will not be enough to succeed at a higher (middle school, HS, college) level. This camp gave them something to think about.
