Nike Basketball Fall Clinic Durango High School Las Vegas, Nevada
US Sports Camps is thrilled to welcome Durango High School to our camp family. We have partnered with DeShawn Henry of Durango High School and Pete Rivas of The Works Sports Academy to direct a one day clinic this fall at Durango High School in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Stronger Team offers the nation’s premier basketball specific training program for junior high, high school and college players. The Stronger Team program is designed to meet the specific needs of a basketball player for injury prevention (ankles, groin, and low back) and performance enhancement (run faster, jump higher, and block out harder). Basketball players are not Olympic lifters, bodybuilders, or track athletes…so they shouldn’t train like them! There is a huge difference between being fit and being in basketball shape. Stronger Team’s results speak for themselves.
- Work with one of the premier basketball coaches and player development trainers in the country
