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 Alan Stein of Stronger Team 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.

“I first saw Alan at the Nike clinic in Myrtle Beach (spring '06). I was immediately hooked. Beyond any doubt, I have never been more impressed by any speaker on any subject than I was with Alan Stein. In fact, Alan's presentation is the only workout program that I have been moved to purchase and incorporate. I appreciated his passion. It's impossible to watch Alan's presentation and not be moved by his energy and enthusiasm. My appreciation for him and his work is unparalleled.”

“I highly recommend Alan Stein to speak at any basketball related coaching clinic or seminar. Alan constantly has new cutting edge ideas and drills for players and teams of all ages and levels. Alan spoke at our Iowa State Basketball Coaches Clinic last year and did a terrific job. Alan’s passion and enthusiasm are unmatched. His videos should be a must to own for all coaches and players who would like to take their game to the next level.”
