Intensive Basketball Camp Staff

The mission of The Intensive Basketball Camp is to offer a level of basketball instruction and life skills training that cannot be replicated at any other basketball skills development camp. In order to make that goal a reality, we hire an expert staff of experienced basketball camp leadership and counselors, which in 2016 included high school coaches, college coaches, college players, a former NBA player / current professional player, a sports leadership and mental training educator, and a full-time athletic training staff. We teach our staff to actively participate in the drills with the players when they can, so when there's an opportunity to get in the mix and train along with the players, they lead by example.

We will maintain a total camper to staff ratio of at least 10:1 for this camp. We also have a full-time training staff at all practices and conditioning workouts. Our lead trainer will be a certified ATC, while other trainers will consist of certified ATCs and college students in the field.
