The philosophy of the boys basketball program is to develop both the physical and mental aspects of being a successful athlete and a successful team player. Each player will be expected to play hard at all times, show class both on and off the court, think about the team first and me second, work hard in the classroom and keep a positive team attitude.
Basketball Summer Camps and Clinics
Players who are already signed up for JV/V Mini-Camp and/or any of the Skills Camp weeks can call Community Ed. and transfer registration fees to the Skills Academy and/or the Strength Training. Football players doing the summer football strength training should only sign up for the Skills Academy, not both.
Players will need to keep spaced when arriving at the school, check in with coaches by getting their temperature checked, answer some basic health questions, and sanitize hands. Then, they are to proceed to their assigned pod/court of 9 players maximum and 1 coach and stay with that group the whole time daily. Players will need to bring their own basketballs and water bottles and cannot share either. No school equipment will be used and there will be no access to locker rooms, drinking fountains, and bathrooms. Players will work individually on skills with the coach on their court. If the CDC/MSHSL's rules loosen later in the summer, we may be able to work with partners and add some competition. Coaches will escort their group to the designated exit doors upon completion of each session, keeping proper distancing. There will be no re-entry.
Those doing the strength sessions will work in groups of a maximum of 9 outside on the track and the field on body weight strength training, straight line and lateral speed, agility drills, and plyometrics. We will work inside in the hallways by the gym if the weather doesn't permit us to be outside. There are quite a few rules to follow, but it is a small price to pay to be able to get back somewhat together in our gyms working on the game we love!
