Our basketball clinic will help the beginner and advanced basketball player. Each week will cater to a different fundamental basketball skill. These skills include Shooting, Dribbling, Passing, Rebounding, and Defense. We will teach the importance of teamwork and sportsmanship which is vital to becoming a strong basketball player. Our professional staff has worked with kids of all ages and skill levels. We take great pride in personal attention and hands on teaching. There will be many fun drills and competitions throughout the program. Rules of the game will be taught, spacing on the court, and basic skills. Our goal is that each player comes out with a better understanding of how to play the game and develop the fundamental basketball skills necessary to excel at basketball.


  • Focus is on learning the rules, spots on the court, basic fundamentals, teamwork, sportsmanship, and court spacing.
  • Fundamentals covered include Triple Threat Stance, proper shooting form, moving/cutting without the ball, defense, passing, rebounding, and dribbling. 
  • There will be a variety of drills, games and competitions.
  • Throughout the program we will get the players acclimated  to learning how to play in a game setting.
