Join A Step Ahead (ASA) for two weeks at Nashua Catholic Junior High School in Nashua, New Hampshire. This Nike Basketball Day Camp is geared for boys and girls of all skill levels, ages 8-16.

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
  • Low 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

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

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.

Transportation

Transportation is not provided by the camp to or from any airports. If you are flying to or from camp, we recommend using an airport shuttle service. Please schedule flights as close as you can to the check-in times on the first day and check-out times on the last day.

Registration Packet

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.  

Scholarships

We cannot offer scholarships due to NCAA regulations. Our affiliation with NCAA coaches and schools puts us in a position where any scholarship money can be seen as an inducement to a future collegiate athlete. This puts our coaches and our host universities in jeopardy of damaging their status with the NCAA and incurring penalties at the hands of their organizing body.

If 10 or more campers register together, as a group by mail or fax, each camper will receive a $40 discount. Click "Get Brochure" above and print the application.
