PHILOSOPHY: Our camps provide a service that everyone in our community can afford. Our goal is for all campers to work hard and feel good about themselves in a safe, disciplined, highly structured and motivated environment of learning and fun. We place the child and his or her personal development ahead of the game. Positive encouragement and measured improvement in the fundamental skills are trademarks of our camp, as well as players learning to work together in a team setting while playing games and tournaments.

TEACHING EMPHASIS: All of our camps offer a solid foundation of fundamental skill development for beginning players and a strong challenge for advanced players. Our teaching progression takes into account age and skill differences. Players are grouped by age, sex, ability and personal request. Young kids who begin in our Lil' Dribblers program and progress through with our camps twice a year will have a tremendous advantage once they begin school programs.


Grades listed is grade athlete is going into. If you feel your athlete can play at the next level or would feel more comfortable dropping back to better meet their skills you can.
