Complete Basketball Experience

The camp has a perfect blend of instruction, games, and competition.  Campers at this camp are coached by college players, prep school, and high school coaches. During our thirty-eight-year history, the secret part of the camp is personal teaching.  Players are in the gym the entire day receiving instruction from coaches, starting with the 8:00 am early bird session to the night owl session at 9:00pm at night.  The players only leave the athletic center for dining. This is an overnight camp.

This camp is perfect for gym rats that want to level up their game both physically and mentally.  With the help of some of the top coaches in the region players will learn new skills and drills that they can take and master on their own.  Players will compete against other highly motivated athletes looking to test their skills and see how they match up against talent across the globe.  This camp is for passionate basketball players that love being in the gym and having a chance to learn from coaches that have taught many high-level players the game of basketball.

The camp provides a no-nonsense environment where players can learn from some of the best teachers in the game.  All coaches are hoop mountain certified ranging from prep school coaches, former professional players, high school, club coaches and college players.  Every staff member shares one common trait; the desire to help our campers meet their potential.

Campers are placed in respective leagues depending on their age and talent.  Each league will offer customized coaching and instruction.  Coaches focus on campers’ mid-range and long-range shooting ability, finishing at the rim, ball handling techniques, passing, proper cutting and screening, transition moves, offensive and defensive rebounding, man on man and team defense.

The goal of the coaches is to evaluate each of the player on their team strength and weakness.  While during the process of coaching each team member, striving to develop each camper’s weakness and continue to fine tune the camper’s strengths.  Our highly trained coaches plan to push each team member to step outside their comfort zone. For example, if a camper doesn’t want to utilize their weak hand to handle the ball in a game, then the coach will challenge the camper to do just that.  Each day consists of countless hours of individual and team training.  As a residential camp we make it our duty training all day and night, also included in the daily regimen are three highly competitive games.

“After attending the hoop Mountain Junior elite camp my eyes were opened up.  My game was pushed to brand new limits.  My camp coach challenged me to attempt new methods during games which led me to newfound success.  The coach’s mindset was not to accept a ceiling or to put a cap in my achievement at camp.  From the minute I stepped on the court my camp coach was able to get me to levels I didn’t think I could reach.”

Chad Dezenio

Hoop Mountain Jr Elite Camper

“As a former Hoop Mountain camper and now camp coach I have a unique perspective on Hoop Mountain.  As a player I competed versus some of the finest players in the region.  Now as a coach at camp I want to convey to my campers the importance of learning one or two new moves to add to their game.  Upon learning the camp my desire is to instill in the player to continually add to their game.”

Mike Sanders

Former Jr. Elite Camper and Coach

“I didn’t know what to expect prior to attending camp.  The camp provided me lots of one-on-one training to become an elite player. After being taught skill work my confidence soared when I returned home from the minute, I woke up to the time I went to bed the overall concentration of the camp was focusing on developing my game”
