Junior Elite Camp
The Hoop Mountain Junior Elite Prospect Camp is a high-level instruction camp. The camp is for players looking for an all-in-one camp to take their basketball game to the next level through games, skill work, film session, and guest lectures. All players will receive outstanding instruction and play against some of the best competition throughout the region.
The camp provides a no-nonsense environment where players can learn from some of the best teachers in the game.

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 campers weakness and continue to fine tune the campers strengths. Our highly trained coaches plan to push each team member to step outside their comfort zone. If a camper doesn’t want to utilize their off hand to handle the ball in a game then the coach will challenge the camper to do just that. We want the campers to experiment his or her limitations and work to become a complete player. 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 regiment is three highly competitive games. All campers will need to fill out this waiver form.
Features of the Hoop Mountain Junior Elite Prospect Camp
“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 in the course of games which led me to new found 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, Former Hoop Mountain Junior Elite Camper
“As a former Hoop Mountain camper and now camp coach I have a very 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 Hoop Mountain Junior Elite Camper and Coach
