Bridgewater-Raritan Basketball Camp

BR-BOE facility surcharge

 

Unfortunately, beginning in the fall of 2019, the BR-BOE has levied a new facilities rental surcharge on groups running programs in the district. Despite being warned that this would create more expensive programs for the families in our town, they did it anyway in an attempt to raise more money off the tax-payers and/or to prevent programs from operating at all. 

 

We will continue our Basketball Camps & Rec Clinics that have been so popular and reasonably priced for years. Nonetheless, the Recreation Department and Summer camps have been forced to increase the fee. 

 

If this new surcharge is disturbing to you, feel free to voice your disapproval directly to the BR-BOE. The folks who run these programs and the BR Rec department have warned the BOE against such a thoughtless action already.

25 YEARS YOUNG... 2015 Camp Notes

A huge thank you to campers and their families for being with us - whether for a brief time or all six weeks. Coach McAteer looks forward to another 25 years of serving the Bridgewater-Raritan community. Photos and Camp Notes have been posted.

2014 Camp Notes

Our six-week 2014 Summer Camp has concluded, and we thank our campers and their families - from first-timers to seasoned veterans! We hope you had fun and learned a lot, and remind you to keep practicing! For your convenience, our legendary camp notes are available for download, which detail steps, techniques, etc.

 

We'd also like to thank our coaches, staff, and guest speakers for working with all our campers.

PRIVATE LESSONS and SMALL GROUP INSTRUCTION

One-on-one and small group instruction is now available through Bridgewater-Raritan Basketball Camp.

 

Former Panther star and current BRHS JV Coach, Steve Kline offers private lessons....

Coach Alex Mahony, another graduate of BRHS, former assistant coach at BRHS, “I’m Possible” Trainer, and now Head Varsity Coach at Rutgers Prep, was the guest speaker at camp July 10. Topics included agility and the importance of faster transitions with the ball to out-maneuver opponents.

Coach Mahony specializes in teaching ball handling skills, strength, and toughness with the ball. Personal Training and small group instruction will be available this fall.

WHAT IS AN UPGRADE? - NOT AVAILABLE 2019

 

**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.
