Participants will be competitively split up into age, gender, and ability groups to challenge their potential.  This program will provide: development of basketball fundamentals and competitive games, daily contests, prizes and giveaways for each player, award ceremony on final day of camp and a fun filled week where each player goes home with something. With strategies to develop the all-around player, the staff works hard to be sure there is a positive, upbeat and energetic climate for making the most out of the experience. Fundamentals are the focus. All aspects of game are explored including offense, defense, and foul shooting. Players will leave with learned moves from the triple threat position, off the dribble, the low post and much more! Feel free to email, call (203) 725-6186 or visit: for any questions.
