2010 Basketball Camp for Kids and High School Athletes
There are almost one million young basketball players in the country. These kids, ranging in age from nine to eighteen, are more dedicated than ever to learning about their sport and finding ways to improve their game. If you are a young basketball player who wants to play college or professional ball in the future, spending some time at a camp can give you a leg up on the competition.
You’ll find several different kinds of camp in your search. Local camps hosted and run by local high schools are a good choice for younger players who want to learn more about the game and develop some basic skills. A local camp may not be the kind of experience that an older player will find most helpful.
Colleges and universities offer camps for kids and high school athletes. A college camp will generally be a more intense experience and a good choice for serious athletes. College camps will be either general skills camps, focused camps for position players or specific skill sets, or recruiting camps where one or more colleges can evaluate your performance with an eye to finding and approaching the best players for their teams. Younger high school athletes may not need to attend a recruitment camp yet, but juniors and seniors who are working on college applications can get something from these camps.
One last thing. College camps will be slightly different this year. The NCAA just ruled that college coaches can speak with players they are actively recruiting at camps held on their campuses. How much this will affect your basketball camp experience is unknown, as this rule is going into effect for the first time in 2010.
