High School Boys Basketball Skills Camp: Company Philosophy
The Intensive Basketball Camp (IBC) was created by JROB Intensive Camps, the leader in intensive wrestling camps since 1978. Our company believes in the power of teaching both physical and mental development. Influenced by the experience of our company's founder—three-time NCAA National Champion Wrestling Coach J Robinson—in Army Ranger School, our Intensive Camps in both basketball and wrestling are known as the most intense and challenging camps in the country. The rigorous training model of the IBC operates on the principle that intense challenges bring about significant change, so we provide a structured environment that pushes athletes to their physical and mental limits. Our goal is to build tough, gritty athletes that will be prepared to win by forcing them to overcome physical and mental challenges every day. Throughout camp, experienced basketball instructors train the players within the context of our company's philosophy of non-stop, distraction-free intensity.
The IBC is a basketball skills camp that focuses on skill improvement and retention through repetition and work ethic development. We teach basketball players how to practice, how to channel hard work towards improvement, and a skill set that translates to immediate and long-term success on the court and in life. The training we provide over this 10-day basketball skills clinic will push players both physically and mentally, and teach them how to succeed in the face of fatigue. Although the focus of our camp is basketball skill development, players will play games each night in order to test their new skills in the heat of live competition.
Although The Intensive Basketball camp will be a huge challenge for the players, we are confident that they will leave with an improved sense of confidence in their basketball skills and in themselves. No other basketball camp focuses on the development of life skills as a key part of the curriculum. We teach seven essential values in the context of basketball that will play an important role in their development as young adults, and which we hope will stay with them for the rest of their lives. Please read below for more information on these seven values.
The J7 training philosophy guides every activity at The Intensive Basketball Camp. We believe that the path to success is paved by a commitment to becoming a better athlete and a better person. Teaching the virtues of the J7—Discipline, Dedication, Sacrifice, Hard Work, Responsibility, Accountability, and Service—within the context of basketball gives us the opportunity to train athletes in an environment that honors individual achievement, fosters leadership, and promotes shared success. These values instilled during camp will make a permanent impact on how the players approach their sport, as well as their life.
