USA Basketball Offers Two Virtual Skills Camps in December
- Players Can Register for a Free “Sneak Peek” Opportunity to Try Out the Virtual Skills Camp Experience -
On the heels of its successful October virtual skills camps, USA Basketball will offer two virtual skills camps in December, hosted by Pro Skills Basketball.
Each camp will meet once each week for three weeks, and the camps are intended for players from age 10-18 years old. Participants can sign up to workout on Wednesdays, Dec. 2, 9 and 16 from 7-8:30 p.m. ET, or on Sundays, Dec. 6, 13 and 20 from 7-8:30 p.m. ET. Registration is available online for the Wednesday and Sunday camps, as is more information.
Players can sign up for a free opportunity to participate in a sample session to preview the virtual skills camp experience on Wednesday, Nov. 18 at 7 p.m. ET, or on Saturday Nov. 21 at 11 a.m. ET. Registration for the free sessions is available online at: Nov. 18 or Nov. 21.
The December virtual camps are designed for middle and high school age basketball players. Participants should have experience competing on middle school, high school and/or club or travel basketball teams. Skills trainers will incorporate multiple skills and instruction together as players challenge themselves through stationary and movement drills, often competing with time and score.
No two camp sessions will be alike. On-screen skills trainers will demonstrate drills and lead camp for one hour of basketball instruction. USA Basketball camp coaches will monitor participants and will provide real-time feedback on performance. Each camp session will conclude with a special guest video chat to discuss life skills education or a questions and answer block.
Registration is $90 per participant and includes three skills sessions and a guest speaker video chat and space will be limited. Participants can log into a video conference room via a private link provided they have a good internet connection.
Participants will need one basketball, proper athletic clothes and shoes and an adequate space for drills, such as a bedroom, garage, driveway, etc.
USA Basketball is committed to offering players a safe way to train when team-gathering opportunities may be limited. The Coaches Assist Program encourages coaches to spread the word about USA Basketball Virtual Skills Camps to their players. For each player a coach gets to sign up with their unique code, $10 will be given back to the coach to help fund their future basketball programming. Additionally, players signing up with a coach’s unique code will get 10% off of their registration. Find more information online about the Coaches Assist Program and how to sign up and take part.
