Daily Overview

A detailed overview for each day at camp
CAMP OPENING

5 DAY CAMP

Each day of the Rockets Basketball Camp will focus on new teaching and deepening professional basketball skills. First building on the fundamentals, and then diving into specialized areas, your child will come away with the knowledge needed for playing at their best. The camp will also include plenty of games, entertainment, and rest to ensure each child is having the time of their lives.

INTRODUCTION

DAY 1 & 2

During the first day of camp, we introduce the children to professional basketball by going over the basic fundamentals: dribbling, shooting, and passing. We also pay careful attention in evaluating each child, properly placing them in the correct group based on age and skill.

On day two we push up the tempo of each workout and skill training. We deep dive into the basics of triple threat and the moves one can do to catch a defender off guard, including the jab step, shot fake, and pivoting. We will also go over the correct form of shooting, or B.E.E.F. (Balance, Eyes, Elbows, Follow Through). We also do various dribbling moves in which the kids try to make a defender reach, jump or hesitate so they can score much each easier on offense.

Time: 9AM – 3PM
Lunch Break: 12PM – 1PM


PASS & GO

DAY 3

On Day 3, we focus on moving with the ball, effective communication, and creating space on offense. The day will focus on improving each child’s court vision, ability to get open, and locating correct spots on the court.
