Youth Basketball Skills Summer Camp
Participating in the YMCA Basketball Skills Summer Camp will improve your young athlete’s basketball fundamentals. Our camp teaches the game based on the philosophy that basketball is more fun when you can play it well and play it the right way. We will use basketball to help each athlete build character and good sportsmanship through the YMCA’s core values of respect, responsibility, caring, and honesty.
Each session begins with a warm up of three-dimensional movement patterns and dynamic flexibility exercises. We then move to basketball fundamentals stations where athletes are taught the basic techniques of shooting, dribbling, passing, rebounding, footwork, and defense. Each session concludes with basketball skills games which allow each athlete to use their developing skills while having fun with the other athletes. There WILL NOT be scrimmaging.
This camp meets on Tuesdays and Thursdays, starting on Tuesday, June 15th and ending on Thursday, July 22nd.
***Please note we WILL NOT be meeting on Thursday, July 1st
