USA Basketball Announces Seven Youth Basketball Regional Camps for 2018

  • Date:
    Mar 12, 2018

USA Basketball today announced that in 2018 it will operate seven youth basketball camps throughout the United States, including three USA Basketball Boys Regional Camps, three USA Basketball Girls Regional Camps and one USA Basketball Boys and Girls Regional Camp. All of the camps are open to boys and girls ages 10-16 years old, regardless of skill level.

“The USA Basketball Regional Camps allow USA Basketball to reach young basketball players of all ability levels with our core values of fun, safety and development,” said Jay Demings, USA Basketball youth development director. “The camps are led by USA Basketball licensed coaches, and the content is about more than fundamentals, although those are important, too. We really want children to have the chance to learn in an environment that is focused on their well-being, because we hope they enjoy basketball for a lifetime.”

USA Basketball Boys Regional Camps will take place on June 9-10 in Chicago; Aug. 4-5 in Richmond, Virginia; and Sept. 29-30 in Houston.

USA Basketball Girls Regional Camps are set for June 23-24 in Atlanta; July 9-10 in San Jose, California; and Aug. 18-19 in Dallas.

Additionally, a USA Basketball Boys and Girls Regional Camp is set for Aug. 18-20 in New York.

USA Basketball Regional Camps are open to players of all skill levels and abilities and emphasize fundamental skill development. Regional camps provide opportunities for children to improve their individual basketball skills while learning from USA Basketball licensed coaches. Camps combine on-court skills training with off-court life skills sessions in a fun and developmentally appropriate learning environment. More information about regional camps can be found online, along with the answers to frequently asked questions.

Registration for any of USA Basketball’s camps includes all sessions, general athlete insurance and an official USA Basketball Youth Development jersey. Players are responsible for transportation to and from the gym, lodging, all meals, clothing and basketball shoes. All participants will be accepted on a first-come, first-served basis.

The first 50 people to register at each location will receive a 20-percent-off discount, and offers also are available for groups of 10 or more by emailing register@usabasketball.com.
