Senior Elite Camp
Hoop Mountain Senior Elite Prospect Camp is designed for players entering 9th grade through Post Graduate. The camp has a perfect blend of instruction, games and college evaluation. Campers at the senior elite prospect camp are coached by college, prep school and high school coaches. Hundreds of players have earned scholarships at the senior elite prospect camp throughout the camps. During our Thirty five-year history, the secret part of the camp is around the personal teaching. Players are in the gym the entire day receiving instruction from college and prep school coaches, starting with the 6:45 am early bird session to the night owl session at 10:00 pm 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 form coaches that have taught many high-level players the game of basketball.

The goal of the coaches is to evaluate each of the player on their team strength and weakness.

“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.”
-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.”
-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”
