Basketball Summer Programs
Shooting three-point shots, dribbling, perfecting zone defense and other technical skills are just one aspect of Basketball Summer Programs. Participation in these programs designed for middle and high school students also promotes teamwork, communication, sportsmanship and social connection. They are hosted by high schools, colleges and specialty basketball camps. Expert instructors can take participants' abilities to the next level, whether they enroll as beginners, or come with intermediate or advanced skills. Technical focal points include footwork, shooting technique, ball handling, passing, rebounding, offense, defense and team strategy and play concepts. These summer programs are often separated into boys and girls sessions, though some are coed. There are dorm and residential options, with some programs focused solely on basketball and others featuring additional sports like baseball, soccer, football and lacrosse.
