There are so many options for youth and high school basketball players today. It is tough to pick was is most age-appropriate. With the growth of AAU basketball, families have less disposable income to spend on overnight camps, however in many cases it can be a life-changing experience for a basketball player.
Below are some of the benefits of attending a quality overnight camp.
- Excellent Teaching: Most established overnight camps have an experienced staff of local high school coaches. These coaches understand basketball development and can help a player develop the skills to succeed in the next winter season.
2. Independence: A child has the opportunity to gain some independence from being away from home.
3. World-Class Guest Speakers: Many exceptional overnight camps bring in guest lecturers to speak about a specific skill. I have been fortunate to attend two camps that have NBA Shooting Coach Dave Hopla as a speaker. He is the absolute best! USA Basketball has an article titled “The Man Who Doesn’t Miss!” It is an incredible opportunity that most basketball never have the chance to experience. BEEF shooting.
