Can parents attend the clinic?
Parents are encouraged to attend the clinic as much as possible. As parents we like to know what goes on with our children at all times. We encourage this along with any feedback.
Is self-esteem and confidence practiced?
We promote good sportsmanship and provide participants with consistent and positive reinforcement all day Teamwork and is one of trademarks of the camp.
How is your staff chosen and what type of coaches does it consist of?
Are coaches are made up of high school coaches, college coaches, college players, metro and AAU coaches and former players. There is a trainer on hand as well CPR and First Aid certified staff to attend to minor scrapes and bruises. The coaches will all be required to have a CORI (background) & SORI check prior to the start of camp. The staff that we choose is normally high honors students in high school and college who are well respected in there respected communities, along with teachers.
What is your player to coach ratio?
Our staff to camper ratio is approximately 1:7. There will be no more than ten participants to a team, which allows maximum playing time for everyone. There will be smaller groups of instruction and as much individual attention as possible.
Do you offer any other programs after the Summer?
We have offered weekend workouts in the Fall for players to sharpen their skills to get ready for the upcoming season. We also offer a Winter Break Clinic in locations.
How many participants come to your camps?
We have grown every year, and last year. We have had approximately 750 campers over the summer and fall. Day camps usually run between 30-130 participants.
Why is there so much emphasis on fundamentals?
In today’s game fundamentals seem to be a lost art. The proper way to shoot a basketball, shooting off the dribble, how to set and roll off a screen, proper footwork ( inside and outside pivoting) on offense and defense, triple threat position, and progression dribbling will be some of the skills participants will be learning.
What is included in tuition?
Each camper will receive a camp T-shirt, Tomorrow’s Stars basketball, written evaluations ( at certain locations ) – which will include what aspects of basketball that a participant is good and also recommendations that may be able to improve a player. There will be a trophy ceremony where some campers will receive trophies for outstanding accomplishments for the week. There will also be giveaways during the week. Some of the individual awards include campers of the day, free throw, hustle, most valuable player and others.
Can we bring our whole team?
This is highly recommended and we encourage it.
What about lunch at the day camps?
A snack bar will be available the Day Camps that lunch is included. Items included will be ice cold sodas, bottled water, Gatorade, snacks and gum. Lunch is included at locations and is posted on the brochure if available.
