The 2012 schedule features camps from coast to coast with overnight and day camp offerings.

Nike Basketball Camps provide focused, intensive training that is essential to improvement for all skill levels. Every facet of the game is covered with an emphasis on fundamentals to help players become valuable team members. At each location, campers are broken into groups with other players of similar age, abilities and goals. Each camp staff does their best to advance players to the next level, keeping in consideration each camper’s experience and desire to improve.
Long-time Nike Camp director, Brendan Smith conducts various camps around the Northeast and preaches the following, “Practice what you’re not good at. Don’t just get better at what you can already do. To reach the next level one must improve their weaknesses. We also stress the importance of practicing as you would play. Game effort needs to be exerted with each and every chance to improve.”
Since our inception in 1996, we have hosted over 42,000 campers at our basketball camps. Last summer alone, over 5,000 young athletes got better at a Nike Basketball Camp – you can also take your game to the next level this year.
“More and more parents and athletes recognize the importance of developing skills and getting better in the summer, so they can make their teams in the winter,” says VP of Basketball Operations for US Sports Camps, Brent Koonce. “It’s fun to play summer leagues and games, but we have partnered with some of the most dedicated basketball coaches in the country to help young athletes reach that next level.”
