In our three-day "Skillz" 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 "skillz" 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 "skillz" 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.
Players will leave the camp with a practice plan for the rest of the summer designed to work on their deficits in each of the four skill areas before the fall season begins.
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!
