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