2017 Summer Camp Policies


Rookies Basketball Camp

For the young players just learning the game, the Rookies Camp introduces boys & girls grades K-5 to the basic fundamentals of the game. It is important for players at this age to build a solid foundation in the fundamentals of shooting, passing, ball handling, and dribbling.  The camp will also feature daily contests and games to ensure each player has a fun time learning the game.


 

Dominique Wilkins Basketball Camp

This summer Basketball Hall of Famer, Dominique Wilkins, will return to Suwanee Sports Academy for his namesake camp.   Wilkins is considered one of the top 50 players to ever play the game.  This camp will be an amazing experience for players to learn from one of basketball's great ambassadors.  Wilkins is often remembered for his higlight dunks, but he is passionate about working with young players on the fundamentals that helped make him successful.   Camp will feature fundamentals, team and individual competitions and game play.  Campers will learn from the best on what it takes to succeed at every level.  CLICK HERE FOR MORE


Scoring/Shooting Camp

Learn how to become a more effective scorer and shooter off the pass and off the dribble. This camp will focus on ball and body position, footwork, creating space from triple threat and being able to get your shot off with 4 dribbles or less.

Schedule:

Friday-June 23.....6:30 - 9:30pm

Saturday-June 24.....9am - 3pm

Sunday-June 25.....9am - 12pm


Point Guard Academy

It is widely agreed that the Point Guard position is the most important role on a basketball team.  What differentiates the good ones from the great ones?  Stephan Curry, Russell Westbrook, Kyrie Irving and Chris Paul have set themselves apart.  They exhibit strong leadership qualities on and off the court, the ability to score from anywhere, create scoring opportunities for their teammates and are among the league leaders in assists and steals.  More importantly, they are fundamentally sound in each aspect of the game.  This camp will explore and instruct in these areas to clearly demonstrate what it takes to play point.
