Staff Pro Level Training
Pro Level Training’s concept is very simple: cover all grounds with everyone that we work with. In addition to skills training, we place major emphasis on the strength, conditioning and performance sides of the game. We will give campers a snapshot of how professional basketball players train in order to get the most out of every second on the floor.View Pro Level Training's Bio ⟩
The idea of Pro Level Training was conceived from Founder Joel Green’s desire to bring the “Pro” style of training and preparation to youth athletes. He saw that there was a need for athletes to learn how to properly prepare their minds and bodies for the game of basketball.
Our goal is to improve the quality of individual on court performance by providing clients with the physical & mental tools needed to get to the next level of their career. We enjoy both training and educating players to get the most out of each session.

Our son is an introvert and was challenged by this camp.
Our son enjoyed the interaction of the staff and other athletes.
January 02, 2018: Our son enjoyed the interaction of the staff and other athletes. He was able to learn from each of the trainings and then apply them in 5 on 5 play. He was well worked, but couldn't wait to wake up and do it again the next day. He (and us) quickly realized that he had more play time and learned more in these 3 days, than in the whole 2-month local rec league he just completed.

I loved being pushed to the max.
July 19, 2016: Great coaches, loved the positive atmosphere! Loved being pushed to the max. I scored the game winning shot during one of the 5v5 and I got a compliment for working hard when practicing my two handed dribble. It was amazing how it feels like you're in a real game situation when playing 5v5! I also really liked the motivational talks at the start and end of camp.
— Ethan R., Camper
The 5v5's let me apply our drills to an actual game.
July 19, 2016: My favorite part of camp was playing 5v5's because that's where I was able to apply our drills into an actual game with other basketball players that challenged me.

July 21, 2017: My boys loved the scrimmages and the coaches. They came home with lots to tell me about what they learned.

Coaches were friendly and supportive.
July 25, 2017: Good balance between drills and scrimmage. My campers (3 kids) were all appropriately sore/fatigued after practice. Coaches were friendly and supportive. I would suggest more competitions on the last day but overall, they had a great experience and want to come back next year.

“Thank you mom for signing me up, I’m having so much fun and learning a lot”.
July 27, 2021: Great experience! My 7 year old son Joseph had zero basketball skills before he started the camp and after attending the Intro to Hoops 5 day camp he learned different skills, movements, how to pass the ball, shooting , dribbling, etc. Everyday after I picked him up he gave me a hug and said “Thank you mom for signing me up, I’m having so much fun and learning a lot”. He also used to have a hard time when losing on games but came home with a different attitude about it “It's ok to lose sometimes, it’s all about having fun!”. The camp was well organized for the number of kids they had (about 80). I was impressed at how well coach Liz remembered most of the kid’s names on the second day during check in. I had the opportunity to stay a few minutes every day to watch and the coaches were all fun, energetic, and caring. My son is now ready to play basketball in our local recreation program and he can’t wait to go again to a Nike Camp next year.
— Katherine I., Parent

it was amazing for him
August 20, 2019: Ryder had a blast. He struggles with a sensory processing disorder which is highly understood by many. To have him work together as a team on something he really loves is amazing for him. He had a coach, I think his name is John, who especially took Ryder under his wing. Thanks so much again.
