Camp ReviewsSubmit a review
This camp builds character.
June 13, 2016: My son learned a lot from this camp! He now wants to go back and learn more! Coach Ivey is excellent! Not only did he make sure they learned great skills for basketball but also character development for life! He is really talented and got the kids to look at life from a new positive perspective, to think and act as a team, and to work hard for what they wanted. Very well done.
BJ Ivey is more than just a coach.
July 29, 2016: From a parent's perspective, BJ Ivey is not just the coach you want for your son or daughter, but he's a mentor that any parent would welcome into their son/daughter's life. He is constantly encouraging the kids with positive stories and messages about having high standards for themselves and aspiring to be not just the best basketball players they can be, but the best people they can be. Every day of camp my son comes home and excitedly relates multiple favorite parts of his day, little things that happened, small successes or just enjoying his coaches and friends. BJ is an exceptional person and he runs an exceptional camp for which we are super grateful.
Terrific camp and experience!

Can't wait to do it again next year!

Positive advice applicable to both basketball and life.

My son loved camp!
June 13, 2016: My son loved camp! The camp exceeded our expectations and he learned so many new skills. He enjoyed Coach Ivey's parables and stories; he retold them to the family when he came home every day from practice.
I like the evaluations that show us how we've improved year to year.
July 31, 2016: I like how we get an evaluation at the end so we can always look back year to year to see our improvement. My favorite part of camp was playing with and against other players with higher skill levels. It helped me improve my skills where needed.

Huge thank you to the Director and Camp Coaches at Riverside High for building basketball skills as well as confidence in my son.
I want to express my appreciation for all the support given to my son at camp. He was new to the sport and tried his best with drills. The encouragement and coaching really built his self-esteem. He was surprised when the Director called his name for the award for the camper who worked hard, asked questions, listened, etc. The Nike backpack he won was perfect and even in his favorite color, blue. Thank you to everyone for coordinating the Nike camps. Huge thank you to the Director and Camp Coaches at Riverside High for building basketball skills as well as confidence in my son. The Nike Basketball Camp exceeded my expectations! He's now going to try out for his middle school's team. Thank you.
