The Backcourt Camp is for players who have a desire to become better educated in the craft of being an exceptional perimeter player. The Backcourt Camp will cover every aspect of becoming an extraordinary point guard, from skill work fundamentals, to becoming the leader of your team. It is our job to teach you how to become a better floor general and how to run the show. This camp will consist of 25 hours of on the court teaching and instruction from one of the best high school coaches in New England history, Brad Seaman. Kingswood Oxford boys coach Brad Seamen has been a cutting-edge professional trainer for over eight years and will be directing the camp. Brad grew up spending every summer at Hoop Mountain. As a long time camper, Brad could not soak up enough basketball expertise each summer. Brad’s quest was to become the best player he could be. His tireless drive allowed him to play college basketball at Suffolk University. Upon his graduation at Suffolk, Brad set his sights on becoming the finest basketball trainer. Today Brad is able to make the claim many of the players he began training at their beginning of development have emerged as exceptional high school and college players. For example, Brad started training Gavin Griffiths while he was in the sixth grade. In the class of 2023 Gavin was ranked twenty second in the country. Brad has also coached Gavin at Kingswood Oxford over the past four years. Brad plans to incorporate a variety of new technology to allow for full engagement in skill training.
The Backcourt Camp is more than just a basketball camp, it will teach you life lessons on how to become a leader. Our staff takes enormous pride in developing and teaching each camper what it takes to become a superb point guard. We want to give you the knowledge on how to reach your potential as a point guard. Each camper will receive an evaluation from the coaches that is personalized with feedback and suggestions for improvement. The summer is the best time to fine tune your game, and there is no better place to do so than at The Backcourt Camp.
Features of the Backcourt Camp
“Without the Hoop Mountain Backcourt Camp, I would not have reached my potential as a backcourt player. I received tremendous knowledge in backcourt play at this camp. I learned valuable lessons on and off the court. I highly recommend this camp to anyone who wants to become a high school or college backcourt player.”
