US Sports Camps and Nike Basketball Camps are thrilled to offer a holiday basketball training opportunity for young players of San Antonio. Nike Basketball Camp Director, TJ Jones, will lead a 3-day camp clinic geared towards boys and girls ages 8-15 that are looking to improve during the Christmas break.

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 eager to teach and reinforce 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

Overall the Nike Basketball Camp 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 in the past seem to just want as many kids to sign up to benefit them financially. Instead of looking out for the player's benefit.

My 9 year old beginner improved so much in such a short time!  He wanted to practice more at home.  The camp director was excellent!  He is very knowledgeable, great with the kids, and also incorporated discipline (which you don't see much anymore!).  I would recommend the camp to everyone.
