Basketball Camps and Private Lessons

Our camps are created to maximize an athlete’s time on court. Each two-hour session we run includes age appropriate warm-up, athletic development, skill progressions and injury prevention. All of our camps have a specific focus to provide our athletes a variety of skills that fit together in a unified system of play. All of our camps are designed and executed by experienced coaches trained in our RISE basketball curriculum. If you are looking to get a head start on your school season or just take the next step in your basketball development come join us. All of our camps are co-ed and for players with a reasonable basketball background.

Some of the skills we will cover in our camps will be:

  • How to handle pressure (ball handling, passing and decision making)
  • Practical ball handing/attacking 1v1 off the dribble
  • Creating and exploiting double gaps
  • Moving on penetration (penetrate and kick situations)
  • One foot vs. two foot finishing
  • Decision making/finishing at the rim
  • Simple scoring opportunities (transition and offensive rebounding)
  • Front rim scoring (close to the rim)
  • Shooting fundamentals (shot form)
  • Shooting off the catch with movement
  • Playing 1v1 to create offense for a teammate
  • Reading ball screen situations
  • Attacking short and long closeouts
  • Reading off ball screens
  • Secondary moves at the rim
  • Creating scoring opportunities in the mid-range and post up outside the key
  • Movement off the post (Laker cuts, post dives)
  • Shooting off the dribble (pull-ups)
