Shooting camp: This camp is geared to improve players' shooting skills and technique. Players will run through drills and play games that are intended to develop and improve on their shooting skills such as: proper form, proper release, body position, effective arc angle, scoring in the paint, increasing range, and more.
Campers will also spend time learning how to perfect their jump shot and in order to become more effective scorers. The mid-range jump shot is a major source for point production for both middle school and high school players. It compliments the game of both perimeter and low-post players. The secret to the mid-range jump shot is footwork and proper preparation to shoot the ball on balance with accuracy. These points will be emphasized in order to make campers better scorers.
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.
A detailed camper registration packet containing check in location, health/release forms, emergency contact numbers, and a checklist of things to bring will be emailed to all registered campers in the Spring. The US Sports Camps health and release forms do not require a doctor's signature and they will be collected on the first day of camp.
