3-day Advanced Skills

Camp dates announced: July 1 - 3, 2024

In our three-day "Advanced Skills" camp, campers will be pushed to develop the skills that are most critical for maximizing their potential—both on and off the court. The focus of each day will be on the four key skills in basketball: ball-handling, footwork, finishing and shooting. In addition, campers will compete in drills focusing on agility, conditioning, and defense. To top it off, there will be daily coach huddles and guest speakers that focus on three off-court skills that apply to success in all sports and in life: leadership, character, and mindset. Camp will culminate with "Competition Friday" where players will compete in team challenges for each key skill, with awards and bragging rights on the line.

Every hour of the camp—as with every 4CITY program—will be guided by three principles: adhering to our 4C Philosophy, keeping all campers safe and feeling included, and HAVING FUN!
