College Basketball Prep Camp (CIC) prepares serious high school athletes for college basketball and college life. Offering a 5 day intensive camp each summer, this camp location captures players from all over the US who want to improve their game on both sides of the court.

Camp provides an in-depth focus on shooting & scoring, attacking the basket, ball handling, learning how to maximize your athletic potential, leadership training, building confidence and insight on how to compete at the next level.

Step 2. Register for camp with your $300 deposit. The application will not be considered until the deposit is made. This is completely refundable if you are not accepted.

Our staff will review your application. We will either send you a notification you have been accepted or we will schedule an interview with our staff to help with consideration. You may also attach a highlight video to the application.

There may be a shuttle from Whitworth to the airport after camp on the final day. If you make early flight arrangements, you will be responsible for your own transportation.
