The goal of WLS Summer Basketball Camp is to encourage children who have an interest in athletics to develop fundamental skills in a non-competitive way. In clinic format, this class instructs students in shooting, passing, offensive moves, and dribbling. Offensive and defensive skills for game situations are also part of the curriculum. This program is open to boys and girls at all levels of play. Taught by Mr. Asberry and qualified WLS staff, this camp promises to be fun and exciting and filled with all elements. Campers will also learn warm-up, stretching, and injury prevention techniques. Campers will take part in age-specific station-to-station training and play scrimmages and games with comparably skilled players. Instruction is provided both individually and in a group setting. Campers will also view video highlights of the world’s best teams and players.
