“ Basketball is my passion“ Coaching is where I feel at peace with all things. Coaching to me is not about winning and losing but rather about development and seeing the improvement throughout the years. I hope my years of experience will allow me to share some wisdom with other lovers of the game of Basketball. Twitter : @nextgenballer Instagram : @nextgenerationballer

Basketball Camps

Off-season training

Things to look for in a basketball camp

1) Ratio of instructors to players

2) Number of participants, is there a limited number or can anyone and everyone attend

3) Dedication to skills vs scrimmages , look for higher skills focus

4) Gender mix, girls tend to be shy when playing with boys and boys tend to ignore girls no matter how good the girls are

5) Instructor gender , girls learn best from girls and vice versa

6) Is it all basketball or is there other activities, that is a personal opinion but it is your money

7) Qualifications of instructors

8) Compensation of instructors, you tend to work harder when you get paid instead of volunteer hours

9) Does camp provide regular feedback to players

10) Is the player going because they want to or because they are forced to.
