The small group training also allows for more interaction with other campers as well as allowing coaches to focus on individual skill training for each camper. Campers will participate within their own age groups and compete for individual and team awards. The camp will also feature professional trainers and NBA/WNBA film study.
"You can never get too much training. To become legendary, you have to work hard today for it to pay off tomorrow. Our coaching staff can help any player at any stage get there." commented Kevin Whitted, former NBA player and NBA D-League coach.
The Elite Summer Development Camp is open to boys and girls between the ages of 9-16. The tuition for the school is $225 and all participants will receive a t-shirt.
