US Sports Camps is proud to team with A Step Ahead for the eighth consecutive summer to offer another Nike Basketball Camp in Newton, MA. ASA Founder Brendan Smith is back with us for another year as director of the basketball camps.

A Step Ahead (ASA) Basketball camps are designed for the player looking to improve his or her game. Our camp schedule is a healthy balance of learning and enjoyment while always maintaining a competitive environment.  Coaches will push and motivate campers throughout the week to improve their skills and basketball IQ. While we do recognize the value of scrimmaging as well as free time, we also pride ourselves in teaching the game of basketball.   Drill stations, full court drills, offensive/defensive technique, and positional moves are all important points of emphasis with the ASA staff. Campers are expected to work hard and be receptive to coaching.  For those looking to stay “A Step Ahead” on the basketball court this is the perfect camp for you.

Highlights Include

  • Superior instruction
  • 8:1 camper to instructor ratio
  • Daily emphasis on fundamental development, team play, and more
  • Official NIKE Camp T-shirt
  • NIKE Camp workbook and other great NIKE prizes

Located in Newton, MA on Meadowbrook Rd we are excited to offer three weeks of camp at Brown Middle School. The school has become a camp favorite location and features two main courts, and twelve baskets total, this is a great spot for any young player to work on his or her game.
