The Inaugural Preview Camp was established to provide an opportunity for players to grow and add to their individual game before the start of a new season. Through fundamental drills, position-based stations, game situations and heavy competition, players are stretched to grow their skill set and build on their basketball IQ. But not only that, players also learn about success philosophies and championship principals from high-level instructors.
Continuing with the same philosophy as the Preview Camp Middle School Session. Some of the Memphis-area’s top championship coaches are coming together to instruct the campers on fundamentals, game concepts and championship mentally. The Preview Camp High School Session will also have a strong focus on positional development.
It’s not too late to register for the camp but hurry because the registration and payment deadline is Wednesday, October 4. Click here to register.
