Chad DiCenzo, Emerson College Point Guard and alumni of Back Court Camp stated, “Without the Hoop Mountain Back Court Camp, I would not have reached my potential as a point guard. I received tremendous knowledge in point guard 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 point guard.”

Back Court Camp is more than just a basketball camp, it will teach your 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 Point Guard Camp.
