Take Your Ball-Handling to the Next Level

This four-week advanced-level camp is for players age 10-17 who want to work HARD on advanced ball-handling. Sessions will focus 100% on dribbling–with two balls for the entire session. Implementing two-ball drills will ensure that you have excellent ball control with both hands, instinctively.

Camp Fee: $150

Eligibility: This is not a beginner-level ball-handling camp. Players with a strong level of confidence with the ball, aged 10 thru 17 are encouraged to sign up. Drills will be hard and very advanced. If you want the challenge to try something different, then this camp is what you are looking for.

Words from Coach Parker:
“In the past I have done camps that focused on ball handling and shooting combined. I wanted to do a camp that is 100% focused on ball control, because confidence with the ball is such a crucial and often overlooked element to success in developing players. Incorporating dual-ball dribbling into training will help players who want to excel gain the edge, with superior ball control with both hands.

  • Drills will help build control, speed, strength, stamina and the CONFIDENCE to handle the basketball in a variety of different game situations.
  • If you can get through this camp dribbling two basketballs, then imagine what you will be able to do with one basketball.”
