Small Group Instruction & Private Lessons AUG & SEPT 2022🏀
Many parents have asked about what we could offer once summer camp is over and small group workouts and our private lessons are great options. We could be outdoors at a park or indoors at the BRHS gym. The days of the week could vary and be flexible to accommodate your schedule. Email Coach Mac to inquire: gmcateer@brrsd.org
Private lessons $40 per hour
Contact Coach Mac ... select a coach to work with ... ask for specific items to be worked on during the lesson ... decide how often to meet
Small group instruction $20 per hour ($30 for a pair of siblings)
These workouts are quick and intense ... serious players are a must ... footwork/ball handling/scoring moves/shooting/1 on 1 play
A private lesson has certain advantages but the small group workouts have a way of pushing kids to go faster and work harder to keep up with the other players in the drill.
  • We have several highly qualified teachers/coaches to choose from:
  • Chris Fox - PE teacher Green Brook Middle School and assistant coach at Hillsborough HS
  • Steve Kline - History/Special Ed teacher at BRHS and our freshman basketball coach
  • Ryan Shellhammer - head girls coach at Mount Saint Mary Academy and Director of NJ Panthers AAU
  • Jeff Dealaman - History/Special Ed teacher at Watchung Hills and girls basketball varsity assistant
  • Gene McAteer - Business Teacher and head boys basketball coach BRHS. 30 years as summer camp director

Here is what a summer camper had to say:
“This camp was such a great way to refresh myself on my skills. All of the coaches were very supportive, encouraging, and assured the other players and I that it is okay to make mistakes. This camp helped me practice skills that I am not very comfortable with, and connected me with possible high school teammates. It was a very welcoming environment and made me excited to come back each day.”

WHAT IS AN UPGRADE? - NOT AVAILABLE 2020/2021/2022 

 

**A frequent question had to do with what the campers miss while at the advance workout session...

...THEY DO NOT MISS ANY GAMES OR CONTESTS...

... the regular camper will have drill stations or mini lecture skill-work from 10:30-11:45.

 

The Upgrade is a very intense workout, the upgrade is a camp within the regular basketball camp program. Campers may 'tryout' the upgrade using the daily rates of: $15 per day if already in the full day camp OR $18 per day as an elite camper exclusively. 

 

Campers entering grades 4-9 may choose the weekly upgrade as a stand alone option ($90) OR participate in the regular day camp and add the upgrade ($75) as well.

 

At 10:30 a.m. every morning, our lead instructor will take the upgrade participants to the back gym for the advanced workout. This will include a ball handling warm-up, a scoring moves segment, video instruction and execution, and finally the upgrade participants will rejoin the regular camp to demonstrate, "show-off" the skills taught that day.

 

The upgrade program concludes at 11:45 a.m. as the entire camp moves to lunch.

 

You can view the upgrades and overall camp teaching and instruction from 2016 below. Again, these camp notes were replaced by our new Facebook page in 2017
