USA Basketball Offers Six Virtual Skills Camps in First Three Months of 2021
– New in 2021 Are an All-Access Pass and On-Demand Video Access, as well as a Free Session for Players and for Coaches –
Continuing to provide opportunities for fun and skills development while keeping children safe, USA Basketball will offer six Virtual Skills Camps in the first three months of 2021.
Each camp meets once each week for three weeks, and USA Basketball Virtual Skills Camps, hosted by Pro Skills Basketball, are designed for middle and high school age basketball players from 10-18 years old. 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.
The six USA Basketball Virtual Skills Camp sessions will be:
• Sundays, Jan. 10, 17 and 24 from 5-6:30 p.m. EST
• Wednesdays, Jan. 13, 20 and 27 from 7-8:30 p.m. EST
• Sundays, Feb. 7, 14 and 21 from 5-6:30 p.m. EST
• Wednesdays, Feb. 10, 17 and 24 from 7-8:30 p.m. EST
• Sundays, March 7, 14 and 21 from 5-6:30 p.m. EST
• Wednesday, March 10, 17 and 24 from 7-8:30 p.m. EST
New in 2021 will be the benefit of on-demand video recordings that participants may re-watch and download after each session, as well as an All-Access Pass, which includes registration for all 18 sessions plus access to on-demand videos of every session.
Registration for a USA Basketball Virtual Camp is $90 per participant and includes three skills sessions and a guest speaker video chat. The All-Access Pass is available for $195. Space will be limited.
USA Basketball also is offering two, free sneak peek virtual workouts, including one session for players and one session for coaches. Players can register to take part in a free session on Jan. 6 from 6-7:30 p.m. EST. The sneak peek virtual workout for coaches is designed to help coaches understand how valuable USA Basketball Skills Camps can be for their team members, as well as provide them with an instructional question-and-answer session with USA Basketball coaches for approximately the final 30 minutes of the session. Coaches may register for a free session on Jan. 6 from 7:30-9 p.m. EST.
USA Basketball Virtual Skills Camp participants will log into a video conference room via a private link provided they have a good internet connection. They will need one basketball, proper athletic clothes and shoes and an adequate space for drills, such as a bedroom, garage, driveway, etc.
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.
Also returning in 2021 is the USA Basketball Coach Assist Program, which 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, applied to any of the six camps or the all-access pass, $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 Coach Assist Program and how to sign up and take part.
