Along with the main university size indoor court, the Legion Athletic Camp features three full outdoor basketball courts and a total of 14 outdoor hoops. This camp is designed for athletes ages 12-17, who are normally grouped according to age and skill level. Exceptions are made for younger exceptional/dedicated athletes.
Morning and afternoon sessions
Consist of stretching and ball-handling, followed by rotations through fundamental, small group and team stations. Each station builds sequentially on previous rotations. Athletes will develop all of their basketball fundamentals: shooting, passing, dribbling, rebounding and defense. Athletes will also learn proper screening, cutting, spacing, reading defenses and offensive moves.
These include various types of basketball competitions and movies and social events with other camps. The week ends with a 4 on 4 tournament and camp awards. Some of the best teaching coaches around can help you to understand this sport and reach the next level as a player.
