Advantage Basketball Camps Daily Agenda

The daily agenda for Advantage Basketball Camps has been developed through the years to provide the best mix of physical activity, practice, instruction, and fun. Take a look at our typical schedule for a week-long session:

Monday | Tuesday | Wednesday | Thursday | Friday

Monday

Mondays are a lot of hard work. New campers will learn the building block drills. Returnng campers will reinforce these skills with additional practice drills from level 1, 2, 3, or 4, depending on their skill level and how long they have been with us. Each drill and level is designed to prepare the students for the next level. Student campers will do 20,000 to 30,000 repetitions during the course of the week. They will do most of their reps in the first two days. As the week goes on, we start to add more and more fun. In this way we can keep the kids motivated and working hard.

9:00 am Talk time (making sure the campers understand why they are about to spend the next 8 hours working their tails off).

Tuesday

On Tuesday, we introduce "station work". This is the kids' favorite way to work at their skill development. We have stations set up all around the gym. Each station will be a different drill or move. Every 5 minutes, the campers will rotate to a new station. There will be a counselor stationed at every basket. The counselors will have the kids work on a new move as they rotate into that basket. The moves will be determined by the camper’s skill level. The campers will also be allowed to get off a shot at the end of the move. In this way each camper will get off a lot of shots by the end of camp. This also allows the counselors to work on the camper’s shooting skills. The campers will hear consistent instructions from all of the counselors.

9:15 am Stationary drilling to reinforce basics from Monday.

Wednesday

By the end of the first two days of our camp the kids have already put in more work than they would in a whole week at any other camp. By Wednesday morning, they show up sore and tired, ready for some fun. We introduce two fun activities:

•  “5-on-5”: The 5-on-5 station, during the 1:30 station work, is simply an informal (or “scrimmage”) basketball game. Granted there is very little learning going on at this station but the kids are having some well-earned fun. The kids will work very hard at the other stations knowing that this fun station is coming up.
•  The “UCLA drill”, designed by coaching legend John Wooden, is a practice exercise that combines learning and fun. We don’t want to give away the secret, so we won’t tell you more about it here. Rest assured, the kids have fun with this one.

Friday

Fridays are half fun and half work. We do a little thing we like to call “Funky Friday”. (Click here to see pictures of our Funky Friday get ups.) We ask the kids to show up in the funkiest, funniest, and wackiest clothes they can think of. We all have a lot of fun with it. Then everyone changes back into their basketball gear and we go to work. The kids have earned an easy day and we give them one. We have learned that you have to give them some fun mixed in with all the hard work to keep them motivated. The kids look forward to Funky Friday and it becomes a great motivational tool.
