Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
I like how it wasn't so much learning a bunch of new skills, but instead, improving the skills I already knew in game situations. I also liked the time spent on ball handling. Intensity day was a really great experience!

Sends a good message
I thought the curriculum was perfect for the age group. My daughters both had a lot of fun while learning basketball and life skills. I really appreciate the inclusion of character education in the camp as it sends a good message that it is important to be a good person as well as basketball player.
