USA Basketball Brings Girls Regional Camp To Northeast
Seventh through 12th grade girls have the opportunity to participate in an official USA Basketball Regional Camp from Oct. 22-23 at the Island Garden Basketball Sports Center (45 Cherry Valley Avenue #1, West Hempstead, NY 11552).
USA Basketball Regional Camps combine on-court skills training with off-court life skills sessions in a fun and competitive learning environment. On court sessions also will include 3x3 and five-on-five game play to further help players develop their skill sets.
One of USA Basketball’s Youth Development initiatives, the focus during a Regional Camp is on helping young players of all skill levels improve fundamentals, while also learning about achieving maximum performance in sport and life.
The Northeast Regional Camp will be directed by Ohemaa Nyanin, USA Basketball Women’s National Team Assistant Director, and will feature 1980 U.S. Olympian Jill Rankin Schneider (Monterey H.S., Texas) as the lead clinician. In addition to serving as the lead clinician for the 2016 USA Basketball Midwest Regional Camp and the 2015 USA Basketball East Regional Camp, Schneider as head coach led USA Basketball women’s teams to gold medals at the 2011 FIBA Americas U16 Championship and the 2012 FIBA U17 World Championship.
The cost to attend the camp is $185, which includes all sessions, general athlete insurance and an official USA Basketball Youth Development jersey. Registrations will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis. Register today at usabgirlsnortheastcamp.
