About the Summer Progressive Basketball Camp Series

This summer camp series will provide maximum benefit when taken sequentially and in total. Each camp will go deep into its specified focus area with extensive drill work to achieve maximum improvement.

Over the course of the five-week program, campers will make substantial progress towards becoming a more complete player. If your schedule does not allow you to participate in all four camps, you will still benefit greatly from taking as few as one camp. However, the more you work, the faster you will improve. And, we offer a 20% off multi-camp discount to reward those dedicated to improving their craft!

Sports Academy’s acclaimed staff of basketball coaches will be joined by the best of local D1 college basketball players, men’s and women’s, who will act as on-court camp counselors. Campers will get to learn from these local heroes the moves and mindset which propelled them to their college careers at the highest level.

Camp size is limited so register soon to avoid disappointment!
